Nuclear Guardianship at Rocky Flats: Nonviolence and Civil Disobedience to Empower Communities, Strengthen a Movement, and Effectively Organize*

In this session we will focus on two different, yet interconnected topics: 1) nuclear guardianship and 2) nonviolent action. The former nuclear weapons facility at Rocky Flats left behind a mess of contaminants, including plutonium, uranium, and more, which threaten our health as citizens living in proximity to the Superfund Site. Rocky Flats continues to be a controversial issue on the Front Range; it is our duty to keep people safe from the dangers of plutonium.  In this workshop we will explore the depths of nonviolence and civil disobedience to empower communities, create and strengthen a movement, and organize effectively.  Education and activism, as a community, have the power to create real change for the people. We will practice different methods of nonviolence and civil disobedience to find an approach that works for you. There will be role play and interactive opportunities.
