Rivera Sun, along with her partner, Dariel Garner (both cofounders of the Love-In-Action Network), are sweeping the West Coast, Rocky Mountains, East Coast, and the Great Lakes Region in Spring 2015 in a nationwide tour, coordinated with Campaign Nonviolence. Teaching nonviolent action workshops and doing readings from her book, The Dandelion Insurrection – a powerful novel on nonviolent change – Rivera Sun is spreading the seeds of courage and strategies for change. Love-In-Action groups, established or still-forming are invited to contact her through Campaign Nonviolence to schedule a visit.
“This is a great opportunity to convene your local group together and invigorate it with new skills, exciting information, and a feeling of solidarity and connection from people all over the country,” Rivera Sun says.
Sun will be visiting 24+ cities and towns speaking, reading from her novels, and teaching workshops on the strategies of nonviolent action behind The Dandelion Insurrection’s story of change. See the full list of cities and schedule Rivera Sun in your town here.
In her workshops, the powerhouse activist and author brings a focused approach to the dynamics and strategy of nonviolent action, covering essentials for planning campaigns, including classics such as Pillars of Support, Spectrum of Allies, 198 Methods of Nonviolent Action, and more. Applicable to anyone working to gain living wages, prevent police brutality, ban fracking, end the climate crisis, stop wars, halt drones, or any other social justice issue, these workshops share the skills of planning powerful campaigns that use nonviolence effectively to make change.
