Reading Group: Organizing A People’s Assembly

February 4 @ 5:00 pm - February 5 @ 7:00 pm PST

“Social Movements throughout history and around the world have used assemblies to make decisions. Movements, particularly in the Global South, Africa, Asia, and Latin America have used assemblies to advance the practice of people power, self-determination, and governance. In the 21st century, social movements are building power through radical democratic, participatory spaces that respect and trust the collective voice of people in struggle.”

Join us for a reading of the people’s movement assembly handbook, an organizing guide for building community democracy and a discussion on practical ways we can create more radical democracy as a tool for justice here and now.
