We have been waiting many months for this to come…Pledge2Protect 2011 is finally here. STAND is about to experience an intense boot camp weekend filled with intensive trainings, powerful speakers and activist networking. Participants will learn about intervention in Libya, continuing work in Darfur and how to successful lead any of their endeavors from gaining earned media to lobby their elected officials.
If you were unable to attend Pledge2Protect this year, don’t worry! We will be incorporating many different opportunities throughout the weekend for your involvement. Make sure you watch our STAND Facebook and Twitter Account for you to submit questions to our panelists and speakers. Use the hashtag #P2P2011 for all your questions, comments and participation. Photos and videos will also be submitted throughout the weekend. Check out the agenda below and read the Pledge2Protect Training Packet

Since this is a change from the original Sunday end time of 2:00 pm, if you need to leave early on Sunday, you will be able to do so. Due to the change in format, there will not be workshop sign-ups or workshop breakouts. Instead, attendees will participate in small group-based training sessions in addition to the large group trainings.
