Malcolm X Grassroots Movement

Malcolm X Grassroots Movement

The Malcolm X Grassroots Movement is an organization of Afrikans in America/New Afrikans whose mission is to defend the human rights of our people and promote self-determination in our community. We understand that the collective institutions of white-supremacy, patriarchy and capitalism have been at the root of our people’s oppression. We understand that without community control and without the power to determine our own lives, we will continue to fall victim to genocide. Therefore, we seek to heighten our consciousness about self-determination as a human right and a solution to our colonization. While organizing around our principles of unity, we are building a network of Black/New Afrikan activists and organizers committed to the protracted struggle for the liberation of the New Afrikan Nation – By Any Means Necessary!

Southsiders Organized for Unity and Liberation (SOUL)

SOUL is a faith and community based organization dedicated to the belief that all people ought to have decent, affordable housing, access to healthy, nutritious food in every neighborhood, a clean environment so our children will be able to breathe the air and drink the water, public transit that gets us to job opportunities, a full employment economy where everyone has the opportunity to work, and living wages so people who work full-time do not remain poor. SOUL was founded in 2006 as a result of several congregations banding together to focus on organizing the South Side and South Suburbs of Chicago. What was a handful of congregations in 2006 has now become a grassroots power organization of 25 congregations and other groups organizing around issues of racial and economic injustice on Chicago’s south side and suburban communities.
