Program 1

Regional Organizing Programs Project Souths regional organizing programs and leadership development initiatives increase the number of skilled leaders and organizers with the capacity to implement cross-issue organizing efforts, develop root cause political analysis, and create long-term movement building strategies. Project South serves as the facilitative anchor for the Southern Movement Assembly, an organizing process that convenes participants working in all levels of Southern social justice organizations in order to strengthen movement-wide infrastructure through communication, education, and coordinated organizing strategies throughout the year. Project South coordinates the Black Radio Project, a network of Black and community-owned radio stations across 10 states in the U.S. rural and urban South to develop high quality content and support communications infrastructure across the region. Additionally, the BAM (Building A Movement Institute) supports organizers and leaders to deepen analysis and coordinate regional strategies.

The Mutual Aid Liberation CenterIn partnership with the Georgia Citizens Coalition on Hunger, Project South launched the Mutual Aid Liberation Center in July 2017. The two-story building and 4.7 acres of land is located in one of the most historic neighborhoods for African American history in the City of Atlanta. The shared project builds a base of Black residents, youth, and community members in South Atlanta to protect the land, provide education, address and prevent violence, provide emergency relief in the wake of crises, and engage grassroots political power. The Umoja Garden is a working farm that engages community members in agricultural learning opportunities and produces fresh vegetables for communities without access to adequate healthy food options. The weekly programming serves over 1,500 community members every year.
