What is it? 

Regional convergence of DSA and other leftists where we will learn how to de-escalate crisis situations. Join us in Kansas City for a weekend of learning, camaraderie  and action! Solidarity housing will be available on a first-come, first-served basis from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon (or night). Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided Saturday and breakfast and lunch will be provided on Sunday.

Why should l go? 

As our organization gains more members and increases our power, we also gain more attention from the right and increase the risk to our members. We must be prepared to de-escalate crisis situations at our meetings and at actions in our communities. This training will teach the skills to verbally and physically de-escalate individuals who are causing disruptions and harm in our spaces. 

Who should go? 

  • You!

  • Marshals

  • Officers

  • Organizers

  • Leaders

  • Any leftist!
