PMA readings and overview

The truth is this People’s Movement Assembly will be different. We’re used to getting folks together to have big conversations but this is the first time we’ve hosted a *virtual* People’s Movement Assembly.

We want to welcome you to settle in for a weekend-long process and embrace the revolutionary community building in this historical moment. 

Which means, we’ve got a lot to cover! To help maximize our time together, we’ve complied a suggested readings list for you and here’s what you can expect this weekend!

You'll find a primary list of materials that we want to make sure you go through, as well as a secondary optional list for those of you who want to go deeper. We’ve listed how long each piece is to help make it more accessible.
