In a few weeks, from August 10-16, Free Tibet! Action Camp will take place! I am ecstatic to help put together one of the most important Students for a Free Tibet (SFT) initiatives in Canada for the very first time! I still remember attending my first Action Camp as a participant in 2013 in Düsseldorf, Germany (pictured below). For so many of us at SFT, Action Camp was one of the key experiences that activated us to become the leaders and activists we are today. Last summer I returned to Düsseldorf, Germany, but this time as an SFT staff member and trainer. It was such an emotional and empowering experience to help facilitate the same trainings, in the same spaces, that I had sat in on just 5 years ago. I had come full circle and it was an incredible moment for me and SFT as a whole.
We are looking for the next generation of youth leaders to take hard-hitting action for Tibet! We want YOU to join this exciting week-long youth leadership and activist training, so that we can equip and empower ourselves to be the most effective advocates for Tibet.
Meet activists and leaders from various social justice movements and hear amazing stories of their first-hand experience fighting for justice and dismantling oppressive structures! Spend time with political prisoners from Tibet and immerse yourself in a unique curriculum that covers workshops on nonviolent direct action, grassroots organizing, campaign planning, media and messaging, public speaking, lobbying and advocacy, and much more.
Together, we can be the change Tibet needs by standing up, speaking out, and taking action against China’s injustices. Don’t miss out! Sign up today at http://sfthq.cc/ActionCamp2018
