Affinity groups are action groups of about 8 to 12 members who meet weekly/fortnightly (tends to be one evening) and arrange non-violent direct actions (NVDA) locally. You can join an affinity group at the end of one of our NVDA training sessions or join an existing one if they have spaces. There are plenty of non-arrestable roles, so please do not let that put you off coming to the training. Please keep an eye on the newsletter and social media for our next NVDA training. If you have any specific questions about the training please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have already had NVDA training which was not run by XR CHelmsofrd and would like to join one of our local affinity groups please email email@example.com
A lot of the existing active members are a part of both a working group and in an affinity group.
