The 2019 Action Plan will grow a base of community members, organizers, artists, youth, and elders who live and work on multiple frontlines. Our Action Plan is based in the shared commitment to advance the vision of the Southern Peoples Initiative, a strategic framework to practice a people’s democracy, to build a new social economy, and to protect and defend our communities. We are mapping frontlines, providing regular political education, sharing skills, coordinating assemblies and actions, and converging to advance our movements for Southern liberation.
