I’m writing to share with you about a movement-building delegation in the deep South. As someone who is helping to organize this delegation, I want to invite RG members to join us in Alabama the first week of March.
I’m a pretty new Resource Generation member, living in Birmingham, Alabama. I am helping the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice organize an exciting project: bringing progressive donors to the south to build cross-regional solidarity around funding racial justice grassroots movements.
As a volunteer on this delegation, I am excited to warmly and boldly invite the RG community to come out to Selma, AL this March for “Investing in Deep South Movements: Investing in the Nation!”
This delegation is a political education and relationship-building opportunity for folks seeking to learn and ground in recent Civil Rights History and current Southern struggles for justice.
This delegation is an opportunity to be a part of forming cross-regional alliances that will encourage us all to invest in Southern progressive organizing as we continue to build our movements locally and nationally.
Selfishly, I hope that RG members will join the delegation because I want your voices here in the South. I want to hear your perspectives and ideas about how we can support critical racial justice organizing in the deep South, and I know that the delegation will be shaped by your presence.
Moreover, I wholeheartedly encourage you to come on this delegation as a mobilization effort in moving $1 Million from the RG community to Black led, Black liberation organizing by May 2015, and in building our long term commitments to racial justice.
