Curious about how to get coverage your team’s work on our website? How to write for an online audience? Or even just how to put together a basic journalistic report?
RSVP for this workshop
When we speak to people directly, no one can change the story. Not the Oregonian, not FOX news, not Facebook, not the gas and oil companies or their Astroturf websites.
Approximately 2,000 people open each monthly newsletter that we can track. And additional people find each article on the website!
Web writing has the potential to reach huge, geographically dispersed audiences. But to engage these readers requires we write our stories to match their habits. Web readers are information foragers, hunting and pecking through the hypertext forest. They often read on phones or tablets in the moments between other activities, often multi-tasking, often distracted. How do we engage our readers despite these challenges, and to what end?
In this short workshop, we will review common best practices for writing for the web. We’ll practice and share our writing in situ, and review the nuts and bolts of publishing our articles to the 350pdx.org blog. We will discuss our communication goals as a Squad of Activist Writers. At the end of the workshop we’ll sign up for assignments, just like a newsroom!
Communications and Outreach team gathering and work party! For more info about what we do, visit this page on our website.

More about Idle No More and the concepts covered in the workshop
Idle No More ~ History of Colonization and Healing Historical Trauma
The workshop shows the 500 years of indigenous resistance that began in 1452 from a Native American perspective. Incorporating traditional teachings and stories, and how the Doctrine of Discovery was the foundation for the historical colonization, genocide, relocation, termination, forced assimilation of Native Americans.
To heal from the historical trauma, you must first understand how colonization has impacted indigenous people. By acknowledging our collective past and focusing on the present healing often leads participants to become aware of historical barriers that can be removed effectively in a safe and comfortable environment.
Idle No More ~ Spiritual Activism
This workshop delves into the Native’s connection with the land, environment, and Spirit. Explore how to incorporate ‘Spirit’ into our activism. Discuss how to start organizing nonviolent direct actions that are Spirit-led instead of ego/mind-led.
Idle No More ~ The 7th Fire
Explore how working with Natives toward common goals of social and environmental justice involves letting go of unconscious racism and privilege. Learn what it means to be a good ally, and how taking the lead from indigenous activists, and community leaders have been changing conventional activism. Learn what Native-led organizing looks like, and stand in solidarity with Natives to ensure our rights to clean air, water, and protection of Mother Earth for us and future generations.
Idle No More ~ Beyond Standing Rock
Highlighting the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), and the Standing Rock Sioux tribe’s right to protect their sacred water, ancestral lands, burial grounds, traditional way of life, community, and treaty rights. We will focus on colonization and decolonization, and learn how to integrate the tradition-based healing and knowledge into your activism from a Native American perspective.
Workshop Presenter:
Sweetwater Nannauck (Tlingit, Haida, Tsimshian)
Director of Idle No More Washington
Sweetwater is an Idle No More activist who advocates for the protection of the fragile environment of the Northwest Coast, for tribal sovereignty rights, and the traditional way of life of Native people. She conducts Idle No More ‘Decolonizing Our Activism’ workshops in a respectful way that is both healing and empowering.
November 10, 2017, is the 5th anniversary of Idle No More. Since then Idle No More Washington has had over 60 events and nonviolent direct actions that address local and global issues. Sweetwater went to Washington, DC to lobby to protect the Arctic; she was involved in the ‘Shell No’ actions in Seattle and Anchorage when President Obama was there. Seattle Weekly features Sweetwater in the annual Seattle Weekly ‘Best of Seattle’ (2015) ‘Best Activism Idea.’
