Before you go to standing rock:
Deep Abiding Love Project (DALP) is dedicated to providing training, support, and resources for activists, organizers, rabble rousers, and trouble makers of all kinds.
Deep Abiding Love Project operates in two modes: Rapid response deployment and militant nonviolent direct action training.
Rapid response happens when organizers call us to their communities to assist with strategies to deal with State of Emergency conditions and other extreme cases of state repression. Much of the work DALP does on the fly is infrastructure support. We can help set up communication tools (internal and external), jail support, safe houses and give street safety trainings.
We also provide several styles and lengths of militant nonviolent direct action training. Our philosophy is grounded in the teachings of James Lawson, Pablo Freire, Augusto Boal, Lisa Fithian and the streets! If you're interested in bringing Deep Abiding Love to your community, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Towards liberation, DALP engages a prefigurative process in building community and organizing from the 5th dimension (love) while amplifying the voices of Black and non-Black people of color. We have seen that strong community connections and access to training and education make people more centered and better able to make safe decisions in crisis situations, especially those created by a violent, white supremacist state.
People did not really need to be led; they needed to be given the skills, information, and opportunity to lead themselves."
