The People’s Assembly is the heart and soul of community-led governance to foster true democracy.  The Assembly is a vehicle for, “political education” and a vehicle to return power to frontline communities most impacted by racial and economic inequality/equity.  The People’s Assembly provides a space for all residents (including but not limited to persons barred from voting due to their criminal history, immigration status or youth) that care about a place to make both large and small decisions regarding the governing of their city, neighborhood and blocks. PAI provides coordination to the Jackson People’s Assembly under the direction of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement.  To learn more about the Jackson People’s Assembly visit  If you are interested in starting a People’s Assembly in your community please feel free to contact us at and we will be happy to assist.
