As a first-year place based team, this group is not new to the world of organizing together. These players have been organizing and collaborating together for at least three years. They have named the key players in Jackson, their resources, strengths and weaknesses and are preparing to focus the next two years on work based on the four drivers of change: practice, policy, public narrative, and strategy. While focusing on these drivers, they are also being conscious of investing time on emotional justice. This team believes the power shift will be brought about through the following strategies: Cultural Activism, Youth Organizing, Community Organizing, and Freedom Summer 2014.
