At the Mid-South Peace and Justice Center our members have a shared vision. A vision for Memphis, the Mid-South, Tennessee and our country. A vision where homelessness and poverty is not a crime; where we funnel people into places of help and support not jail cells; where slumlords and big banks are held responsible to the communities they are destroying through predatory lending and foreclosure; where tax dollars are used to lift all of our communities up, prioritizing those that are suffering; where no human being is illegal. A place where the the dignity of the human person is held above the motives of profit and greed.
We know that the only way we will achieve this social change is by building movements comprised of those that are most affected by social problems in our society. While politicians argue with each other and focus their attention on everything but the needs of low-income communities, we are training and organizing grassroots leaders to lead campaigns of social, economic, and racial justice. We are working to build a movement of those that suffer the most, yet have the least input in decisions that directly affect their lives. That’s why movement building is a permanent effort: in both good times and bad, we always need to build the next push for changeleader by leader, community by community.
Our work together continues forward as we work to build a movement to challenge injustice and put power back into the hands of our community. Last year was a banner year for our community. So we are proud to present to you our 2012 Annual Report.
But there was so much to share we had to create an online presentation for you to view it easily. It’s called a Prezi, we hope you enjoy. Click here to view the 2012 Annual Report.
