SOUTHERN MOVEMENT ASSEMBLY 9
WHAT DO WE DO IN A TIME OF CRISIS?
We gather our people. Care for each other. And make a plan.
Just days after the national elections, Southern organizers, community members, and frontline leaders will gather to determine the strategy for a coordinated People’s First 100 Days of 2021. No matter what happens during the elections, we will connect, coordinate, and grow our movement to build the world that works for all of us.

In 2020 over 650 people across the U.S. South have participated in SMA Actions & Assemblies!
The Southern Movement Assembly 9 is a culmination of People’s Movement Assemblies dedicated to sharing, planning, and strategizing for building power and growing the Southern Freedom movement in this unique and challenging political moment.
The last Wednesdays of July, August, and September, during our regular General Membership Assembly calls, we facilitated People’s Movement Assemblies based on the elements of the Southern People’s Initiative. Launched in 2015, the Southern People’s Initiative reflects the synthesized visions of hundreds of Southern organizations fighting and building on the frontlines of every issue.
- JULY 29: Protect & Defend Assembly
- AUGUST 26: New Social Economy Assembly
- SEPTEMBER 30: People’s Democracy Assembly
Southern Summer is part of the 2020 Action Plan is a collaborative plan we developed at the eighth SMA in 2019 to advance the Southern People’s Initiative in all our communities.
See you at the Southern Movement Assembly 9!
Southern Movement Assembly Action Plan 2020
Every time we gather as a Southern Movement Assembly, we produce a plan of action. At the SMA8 in Mississippi in November 2019, we divided ourselves into three assemblies based on the elements of the Southern Peoples Initiative. In each of these assemblies we discussed our visions and strategies for 2020. We gathered on Saturday evening with representatives from each assembly and over 100 people participating as a large group to synthesize the ideas into an action plan.
The challenges we face in our communities are more urgent than ever, but we are stronger when we come together. Southern movement forces are ready to take action and grow southern power from the bottom up.
