Peoples Movement Assemblies are community gatherings designed for groups to:
·       analyze the current political moment
·       vision the future we want, and
·       commit to actions towards the future
Our Themes for Detroit’s PMA are to:
·       build an intergenerational movement
·       build our capacity for community self-determination
·       de-silo our movement
Just Transition is a framework that recognizes that:
·       our current extractive economy must be replaced with an alternative that is localized, democratic, just, and regenerative
·       the development of solutions must be led by communities most harmed by the current system, and
·       this process will take time as people co-liberate themselves into new ways of living.
Our 4 Key Fronts of Struggle for Detroit’s Just Transition are:
·       Water & Food
·       Environmental Justice
·       Education
·       Black Lives Matter/ Black Liberation
This is more than a conference! This is a working meeting, networking, AND strategy session
