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.
