Adams is a nonviolence and social movement trainer and has served in that role for Fellowship of Reconciliation, School of the Americas, Peacemakers of Schoharie, Student Environmental Action Team, Veterans For Peace, War Resisters League, and is currently working with the Meta Peace Team and is co-chair of Creating a Culture of Peace. He utilizes international and domestic law as a tool to counter our war culture. He has testified before the U.S. Congress Judiciary Committee as well as the Canadian Parliament. He has been arrested repeatedly for his involvement in direct actions and has just come off an 80 day fast of 300 (max) calories in solidarity with the Guantanamo Bay and Pelican Bay hunger strikes.
If there is interest, he will offer workshops on Movement Action Plan (MAP), designed to help activists choose the most effective tactics and strategies at each of the distance stages that social movements always progress through. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, learn from generations of successful social movements. This workshop will help you see where you are and what to do next to focus your energies where and when they are needed.
This presentation should be a must for social activists and everyone interested in joining the swelling social movement to close Gitmo.
