Centering People in the Criminal Justice Reform and the Immigrant Rights Movement in the South

Grassroots community organizing has tackled the dual pillars of mass criminalization in Georgia—mass incarceration and immigrant deportation—by focusing on people rather than on siloed issues. This cross-movement work requires deep relationship building across political and ideological differences and a focus on healing. This workshop will  explore how grantmakers across the country can better support movement building across criminal justice and immigrant rights, centering the people most impacted and moving us from transactional to transformational partnerships for change.
