Over 250 Activists and organizers from Mississippi and throughout the south and southwest gathered at the Chokwe Lumumba Center for Economic Democracy and Development Friday, June 26th through Sunday, June 28th, 2015.

In setting our purpose and the intention for the PMA, we realized our struggles are centered through our individual and collective identities of Youth, Gender, Labor/Worker, Economic Democracy and Energy Democracy and their relation to system change. The five tracks were thus created to be addressed through the PMA process to bring about local to global strategies that influence system change.

This report highlights the community report backs from the discussions and work done in five tracks. 

The Assembly also served as Jackson’s contribution to the 2015 polycentric US Social Forum, which was also held in Philadelphia, PA and San Jose, CA.

Cooperation Jackson thanks our partners and allies in helping to make this Southern People’s Movement Assembly a success. Our partners included the National Planning Committee (NPC) of the US Social Forum, the Our Power Campaign, the Climate Justice Alliance, the Grassroots Global Justice Alliance, the Reinvest Network, and the Southern Grassroots Economies Project (SGEP).
