Campaigns & Direct Actions
Which actions are we most comfortable with, now? What are other actions that we could incorporate into our actions repertoire, but might feel a little out of reach? We're encouraging SURJ groups to use the ActionComfort Zone tool at an upcoming meeting, and to share reflections on this conference call. We'll also offer suggestions and support for growing the range of our action comfort zones. Click here for a suggested 50-minute exercise using that tool.
