Project South: Institute for the Elimination of Poverty & Genocide

Mission: 

Project South is a Southern-based leadership development organization that creates spaces for movement building. We work with communities pushed forward by racism, poverty, and violence in order to strengthen leadership and to provide popular political and economic education for personal and social transformation. We build relationships with organizations and networks across the US and global South to inform our local work and to engage in bottom-up movement building for social and economic justice.

Project South: Institute for the Elimination of Poverty and Genocide focuses on dismantling the root causes of oppression. Project South is committed to building people power from the bottom up, working across issue areas, and among many grassroots organizations working for the liberation of all people affected by economic, racial, gender injustice.
