The 2018 Midterm Election has changed the political landscape resulting in one of the most reactionary, pro-corporate governments in recent Alabama history, putting women, people of color, and LGBTQ folks in our communities at even greater risk.
Despite the electoral outcomes, we made significant inroads in rural and working class communities and are continuing to lay the groundwork to win progressive populist governing power in our state.
Join a working group to help build on this momentum.
Movement Politics Working Group: We’re building a new kind of politics for our movement to advance a progressive populist agenda statewide. To do this we must analyze the current electoral landscape, craft a long-term strategy, and begin the process of recruiting and training the next generation of elected officials.
Cultural Dialogue & Healing Working Group: We face many barriers to reaching vast segments of the electorate and building the inclusive, sustainable communities we need to thrive. By reconnecting with our own history, engaging in cross-cultural and inter-generational dialogue we can come together around a shared vision for our future that transcends partisan divisions.
Queer Organizing Project: The South is home to the largest share of LGBTQ folks in the country yet it is also among the most regressive when it comes to LGBTQ rights and gender equity. We're investing in our LGBTQ leaders, raising awareness of the issues they face, and building inclusive communities where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
