Dear Friends and Project South Supporters,
Join me for a spiked tea party to celebrate Project South's 30 years of organizing in the legacy of the Southern Freedom Movement. We will be in the company of Stephanie Guilloud, Project South co-director, members, and supporters of Project South from around the Bay Area.
For folks who don't know about Project South here is a bit of history: Founded in 1986 during a sweep of voter suppression in the Deep South, Project South is rooted in liberation that centers Southern movement building. I worked with Project South to build a Transformative Justice collaborative in Atlanta and on two US Social Forums in Atlanta and Detroit. In my decade plus of work with Project South, I am always inspired and comforted by their unwavering integrity and commitment to grassroots movement building and truly transformative organizing and activism. There are few organizations that can translate this commitment into visionary action, and into locally rooted programs and campaigns with national and global reach.
In honor of Project South’s strong vision and organizing during this time of profound forces of change – both deeply scary forces and acts of violence and inspiring mass resistance and movement for justice and lasting change – I’d like to invite you to a Mad Tea party for a mad, moving and beautiful world.

With love and power,
