A MESSAGE FROM THE UNIVERSITY SIN FRONTERAS on BUILDING UNITY IN A TIME OF DIVISION
We come from oppressed experiences and systems. We come divided by coloniality (thinking like colonial subjects), binary systems, racism, sexism, class divisions, culture, geography, and nationality. The educational system has perpetuated these divisions, so we must decolonize our learning and our minds. To be united is to create convergence and bring together all of the thinking towards synthesis to create an inclusive vision, and plan for action.
Southern Movement Assembly anchor organizations participated in the development of the Movement 4 Black Lives policy demands, and we believe that it is a powerful tool that gives us road maps for how to push for transformative change on the local, state, and federal level.
