We Marched, Now We Act - January 17, 2018

Whatcom/Skagit People's Movement Assembly

Fighting for immigrant communities, indigenous communities, our freedoms, human rights, democracy, the health of women and children, and Mother Earth, the People's Movement Assembly (PMA) is a process of collective problem-solving. It is an act of coming together to share, work and move toward a collective vision led by the people on the frontlines of the struggle. It is a social movement of those most affected by historical and current injustices to demand justice with a coordinated and sustained collective force.

Join Junga Subadar of Bellingham Racial Justice Coalition, Michelle Vendiola and Talia London of Red Line Salish Sea, and Rosalinda Guillen of Community to Community in a conversation about the PMA. Recorded for the Community Voz program at KSVR's sister station KMRE in Bellingham.

Convening once again in a Trump administration anti-inauguration PMA, community members are invited to join in a participative analysis of actions and commitments of the PMA held in January of 2017.
