The Memphis district of Freedom Road brought together cadre from around the nation to support a local organizing effort, Memphis for All, to apply our line and strategy to local elections. The Path to Power Memphis for all Solidarity Brigade took place in mid-July 2018 to culminate with an early voting canvassing effort.
The program of the Brigade featured:
- Mass Line training
- Three forms of power (political, governing, and state) workshop
- Black organizer breakouts on intersections of labor and Black folks and building Black political and governing power
- Praxis, praxis, praxis!
