Regional Activist Gathering Outside of Charlottesville, VA June 22nd - 24th Focus on War, Prisons, Immigration and Racism (434) 906-0421 In less than 3 weeks we’ll be setting up at Shannon Farm for the 4th Annual People United Gathering. We’ve put a lot of work into providing a space and agenda for a great weekend of building relationships, educating ourselves and strengthening our visions, strategies and tactics. Inspired by the World Social Forum that over the past seven years has brought together grassroots organizers and non-profit workers, youth, longtime activists and cultural workers all under the banner of “Another World is Possible!” - there will be the first ever US Social Forum this June 27-July 1 in Atlanta, Georgia. Along with other regions across the country, The People United is using this opportunity to build on the great work to be done in Georgia by creating space for activists across the state to start planning so that another Virginia is possible. If you want to gain a regional perspective before heading off to Atlanta or want to participate in local movement building for social justice we need you at the Virginia Social Forum!
