National Mobilization to Peacefully Stop U.S. Drone Wars

Our beautiful, weeklong peaceful convergence in the Nevada Desert is almost here!   We can’t wait to see you all, and work together to GROUND the DRONES!
Please register HERE, so we can best serve everyone.

This is a special year because it marks the 10th anniversary of Bay Area CODEPINK’s twice yearly resistance to killer drones at Creech Air Force Base.  It is also marks the 5th annual national mobilization known as “SHUT DOWN CREECH.”  Help us make this push for peace exceptional!  Be there!

Special theme:  In solidarity with the national call to action to protest the 70th anniversary of NATO Summit in Washington DC, we will devote one day at Creech promoting: “ABOLISH NATO, DE-MILITARIZE NOW!”
Please come for part or all of this amazing Peace Convergence to nonviolently resist the illegal U.S. drone targeted assassination program.  Stay at the newly relocated CAMP JUSTICE peace encampment, set up on the “Goddess Temple” grounds, 3 miles from Creech AFB.  Most meals provided. We will send you a transportation form after you register with us, to coordinate ride shares to/from Camp Justice & Las Vegas.  Click on tabs at the top of this page for detailed info about:   Housing, Transportation, Camp Justice, Meals, Sponsorship, Registration, etc.

Antidotes to White Fragility Workshop @ Sierra Club
Mar 31 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

What skills, tools and approaches are useful in encouraging white people to sustain balanced engagement with anti-racism/racial justice education and work? How can we cultivate resilience (as opposed to white fragility) in ourselves, our communities, and our movements?

White Fragility is defined by Robin DiAngelo as “A state in which even a minimum amount of racial stress becomes intolerable, triggering a range of defensive moves. These moves include the outward display of emotions such as anger, fear, and guilt, and behaviors such as argumentation, silence, and leaving the stress-inducing situation (2011).” What skills, tools and approaches are useful in encouraging white people to sustain balanced engagement with anti-racism/racial justice education and work? How can we cultivate resilience (as opposed to white fragility) in ourselves, our communities, and our movements? Resilience is, in part, defined as:

1. Staying with the conversation

2. Giving and receiving information and feedback from facilitators and peers without becoming highly defensive, reactive, or shut down/dissociated for long period of time

3. Managing the guilt and shame that can arise in learning about the history and current reality of race and racism in the US.

This workshop will explore the role of the body, community, spirituality, intellectual knowledge and other themes that you bring from your experience. We will cover basic information about how the brain and body responds to perceived threats, and explore how to work with this toward greater resilience in moments of challenge.

This workshop is for all experience levels. Participants will be invited to discuss in small groups, move around the space, and hold their bodies in different shapes for 1-2 minutes if available. Content will be presented in both verbal and written formats.
