SFT holds several regional conferences each year. These 2-3 days trainings give participants an overview of the basic principles of grassroots organizing, non-violent direct action and strategic planning. Conferences are also a great way for our members to connect with other SFT chapters in their region, and to plan for the year ahead.
National and regional conferences are sometimes easier to attend than a week-long camp. Although not as in-depth as an action camp, conferences are a great way to get training in campaign strategy, grassroots organizing, ‘Teaching Tibet,’ fundraising, media and more – skills that will make a big difference to the impact you can have for Tibet in your own community.
Conferences are also valuable as a way to meet fellow SFTers. It gives you a chance to share problems and successes you’ve had and to make contacts that will help you do better work for Tibet.
SFT aims to hold a conference in each region of the US once a year. Conferences and other trainings also happen regularly in Europe and Canada, and we hope to soon see conferences elsewhere around the world as well.
