Programs and Services: 

Project South is a leadership development organization based in the U.S. South creating spaces for movement building. We work with communities pushed forward by the struggle to strengthen leadership and provide popular political & economic education for personal and social transformation. We build relationships with organizations and networks across the U.S. and global South to inform our local work and to engage in bottom-up movement building for social and economic justice. Project South creates opportunities for organizing, movement-building, and leadership development through the Grassroots Popular Education Project on local, national, and international levels. We build strategic thinking and planning capacity of grassroots and community groups to organize around local/regional issues by using popular education techniques; we develop leaders in these organizations who are indigenous who know and understand the issues within their communities through lived experience; and we connect community issues to the "bigger picture" of building a new movement for social and economic justice.
