What are Peoples Movement Assemblies in the US Social Forum Process?

PMAs are foundational to accomplishing the US Social Forum strategic goal of moving toward political alignment and movement cohesion to transform society and protect the earth.

The National Planning Committee of the US Social Forum has agreed that PMAs will be used as the primary outreach and political education tool in 2014 and 2015 as we build towards convening civil society in June of 2015 in Philadelphia, PA and Jackson, MS and San Jose, CA for the
third US Social Forum!

And all these local and regional PMAs (and the PMAs that happen at the polycentric social forum sites) will culminate in an Assembly of Assemblies being planned for 2016 where we will collectively create and present a coherent set of “Movement Demands.”
