People’s Movement Assembly 2022
We are re-thinking, re-generating at the 4th Annual People’s Movement Assembly! Join us for a special time to build a shared climate justice agenda in the community. We’ll have panel speakers working at the heart of energy equity and an engaging community-driven agenda. Our keynote speakers are Carmen Means, executive director of Central and Bryant neighborhoods in the heart of George Floyd Square, and Kristel Porter, executive director of MN Renewable Now.
We will gather online (via Zoom) or in-person at Liberty’s Northside Healing Space in Minneapolis, located at 2100 Emerson Avenue N, Minneapolis, MN 55411. All are welcome! Come to be energized, connected, and invigorated as we imagine a just climate future.
Hosted by Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light, Just Solar Coalition, and Minneapolis Climate Action.
This event is based on Ed Owens’ People’s Movement Assembly Model. We will celebrate our own leadership and power to collectively identify issues and create solutions to our climate crisis that reflect local leadership and culture. From the People’s Movement Assembly website:
The People’s Movement Assembly is a gathering of people to make decisions for collective action and power.
The assembly process is based on a theory of change that people can create processes that dismantle colonial and neocolonial systems while at the same time creating a new society.
At the heart of the assembly process is a project to dismantle patriarchy, racism, poverty, capitalism, oppression, exploitation, and violence while replacing those systems with movement governance and liberated institutions.
The assembly collectively answers:
- What are the problems we face?
- What are the solutions?
- What are we going to do about it?
- This event has passed.
