The Southern Vision Alliance supports leadership development and base-building work for social, racial, and environmental justice, along with gender equity, LGBTQ rights, and education justice in the US South.
Support for Black Lives Matter Uprisings
Southern Vision Alliance sends our solidarity, love and rage to the movement that is boldly confronting white supremacy and anti-Black racism in its many forms.
Our communities are facing two pandemics – COVID-19 and racism. Building power in the streets, in our neighborhoods, in our schools, and in our workplaces is critical. Like so many, we are encouraged by the uprising that has broken out across the South and across the country – in large cities and rural communities – ushering in a new period of struggle led by young people, Black folks and people of color, women, queer folks, migrants, and that is uncompromising and visionary.
Our Response to COVID-19
We are in the midst of a global pandemic, witnessing the devastating consequences of COVID-19 on countries and communities across the world. This health crisis is exposing, in no uncertain terms, the social, economic, and political crisis that our communities have been bearing for decades and more.
The Southern Vision Alliance’s Frontlines Leaders Fund is eager to move small grants to as many grassroots efforts as possible organizing in response to the COVID-19 crisis. This crisis is highlighting the real lack of public infrastructure capable of prioritizing human needs over profit. As hundreds of thousands of people face uncertainty, we are relying on the resilience of the human spirit to care for and check on each other.
