The People's First 100 Days

Media Type: 

In September 2012, over 250 grassroots community leaders from throughout the South came together at the Southern Movement Assembly in Lowndes County, Alabama. There they planned the People's First 100 Days, a series of coordinated regional actions and community assemblies aimed at building a Southern Freedom Movement. Starting the day after the elections, the People's First 100 Days aims to build community, activate new strategies, develop infrastructure, and build the Southern Freedom Movement from the ground up.
