Southern Peoples Work Teams!

The Southern Movement Assembly anchors coordinate collective work teams in a living practice of Peoples Democracy. By creating genuine democratic practice, we hope to build infrastructure and capacity in the south! Work teams are blended mixtures of anchor organization representatives, participating organizations, and individuals excited to support the process. The primary role of the work teams currently is to build infrastructure throughout the south during the #SouthernPeoplesPower Tour. Folks of all capacity levels are invited.
