Water Protectors of Milwaukee and Human Equality Love Project are hosting an 8-hour affinity group medic training in Milwaukee on Sunday, August 27th at the Escuela Verde school. Click HERE for a downloadable PDF of this information

“We are here to help liberation movements sustain themselves by providing them with emotional & physical first aid & aftercare— emphasizing self-care, sharing of knowledge, and mutual aid.”- Rosehip Medic Collective

Medic Training Includes:

7 hours of class time and an hour’s worth of lunch and breaks, for a total of 8 hours. RSVP HERE 

This affinity group training will prepare us to stay safe and healthy during direct actions. Participants will learn:

  1. How to prepare for an action
  2. What to expect/different scenarios that may occur during an action 
  3. What we can do after to make the action successful and healthy for its participants

We will also train affinity group first-aiders to have a base of knowledge and first aid skills. This will teach our groups to know their strengths/limits and know when to seek further help. 

Topics included in this training:

  • Affinity-group model of organizing
  • How to stay safe and healthy navigating intense protest situations
  • Dealing with pepper spray and tear gas
  • First aid
  • Injury/Trauma Care
  • Post-action care

Our Trainers:

We are excited and blessed to have a few trainers from Chicago Action Medical (CAM) as our leads for this training. CAM is a volunteer group of progressive medical professionals and street medics. CAM has provided health support at protests for social change and environmental justice since 2002. They have helped organize and provide medical care at actions across the U.S. as well as in other countries. They most recently have provided medical care in Ferguson, MO and Standing Rock, ND.

Cost of Training:

While this is a FREE training, we do ask that if you can, make a contribution to CAM via the link below.

Without these contributions, it is difficult for CAM to continue their good work but more importantly to be able to share their knowledge and expertise with communities like ours in Milwaukee.
