For over five years, the Southern Movement Assembly has brought thousands of people together from every state in the South, from every frontline of struggle, and from all our many cultures. We have produced the Southern Movement Blueprint, organized rapid response to crises, and launched shared initiatives to build a new economy, practice a people’s democracy, and prepare the ground to protect and defend our communities. We are stronger together, and we are stronger when we move our movement resources.
We are proud to partner with Franklinton Center at Bricks in Whitakers, North Carolina, a former plantation transformed by the Black community into a school, working farm, community center and retreat space. Supporting the incredible work of Bricks is an honor and fulfills our principles of supporting local leadership wherever we gather.
