Gulf South Rising (GSR) is a regional movement of coordinated actions and events to highlight the impact of the global climate crisis on the Gulf South region (TX, LA, MS, AL, FL).

Grassroots leaders across the Gulf South are organizing collaborative events and actions around strategic dates in 2015, including the 5th anniversary of the BP Oil Crisis and the 10th anniversary of the Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, among other turning points. Frontline communities demand a just transition away from extractive industries and discriminatory and unjust practices that hinder equitable recovery from disaster and impedes the development of sustainable communities.

The year-long initiative

  1. builds regional movement infrastructure;
  2. convenes frontline communities around collective healing and ecological equity;
  3. advances regional efforts of indigenous tribal and land sovereignty; and,
  4. shifts the regional narrative from resilience to resistance.

Join us on April 23-24, 2015 at the annual Leadership Summit hosted by The Center for Fair Housing based in Mobile Alabama. The theme this year is Gulf South Rising: Making an Impact for Just Communities
