2021 Scouting 101

Want to learn one of the foundational skills essential to planning a successful direct action? Join the BlackOUT Collective for a 2-part virtual Scouting 101 training, where Black organizers and activists will learn the basics of how to scout for an action, and build on what they learn over two 2.5-hour sessions.

The BlackOUT Collective is offering a virtual scouting training to equip Black organizers and activists with one of the many skills needed to plan a successful direct action. This is NOT a Direct Action 101, so we’re hoping folks come with an understanding and even some familiarity with what direct action is, even if you have not attended a BlackOUT training before.

The training is free for all participants and will take place on July 28th & August 4th from 6:30pm – 9:00pm ET/5:30pm – 8:00 CT/3:30pm – 6:00pm PT. Participation in both sessions is mandatory and the training will be capped at 20 participants, with a waitlist.

Applications are due Monday, July 19th and can be found here.
