Project South is a Southern-based leadership development organization that creates spaces for movement building. We work with communities pushed forward by the struggle– 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.

The world we are fighting for will evolve from the continuous struggle of liberated people. Cooperative, globally-interconnected communities protect, produce, distribute, and sustain the resources of the earth on the basis of need. Our society values the power of diversity and difference, which allows all humanity to develop to our fullest potential.
