In 18 months, the direct action collective "black.seed" executed #BlackBrunch, shut down a police department, woke the mayor, shut down a city council meeting and the Bay Bridge. We will analyze the tactical approaches we’ve utilized in Black, queer feminist centered direct action organizing. Participants will first explore the long history of DA organizing and be guided through a direct action plan, including objectives, logic, roles and strategy.
