Listen to Gulf South Rising’s Final Report Webinar and read the Gulf South Rising Final Report.
Gulf South Rising’s achievements go beyond the planning and execution of actions and events. This twelve-month initiative succeeded in shifting the narrative from “resilience” to “resistance”, and laid important regional movement infrastructure by connecting individuals and groups across the Gulf South. Local and regional meetings brought people together around collective healing and ecological equity. All this while galvanizing the energy of the region and the nation toward supporting indigenous and tribal land sovereignty in the Gulf South. Dollars raised and assets acquired from the 2015 Gulf South Rising initiative now belong to a regional Community Controlled Fund, the goals of which are currently being established by community members.
On August 30th 2016, the Gulf South Rising final report webinar provided information on what Gulf South Rising accomplished and how, lessons learned, and recommendations from the region. The webinar offered highlights of the Final Report document which provides a more comprehensive overview of Gulf South Rising. To listen to a recording of a webinar, click the link below.
