PEOPLE’S FIRST 100 DAYS since Obama Victory

A set of Southern regional coordinated actions to build movement

At the Southern Movement Assembly held in Lowndes County, AL on September 21-22, 2012, Southern community leaders representing over 25 delegations agreed to coordinate a Peoples First Hundred Days (P-100D) beginning the day after the National Elections on November 7 through February 15, 2012.

During the P-100D the Southern Freedom Movement will share information with each other, advance our local struggles as part of a larger movement, and coordinate 5 major actions throughout the Southeast: N7, Community Assemblies, MLK Day, February 14th, and the National Student Bill of Rights actions.

We find unity in our common principle that Nobody’s Free Until Everybody’s Free.


Peoples 100 Days TACTICAL TEAM
  • Overall coordination of actions, curriculum, and communication
  • Creating multiple entry points for southern movement forces

ACTION STEERING COMMITTEES (N7, Community Assemblies, MLK, NSBR, Feb14)
