Come for inspiration, information, & music with Si Kahn, celebrated folksinger/songwriter, and his colleague Monica Simpson, Ujamaa Coordinator.
Founded by Si Kahn in 1980, Grassroots Leadership is a southern-based national organization that seeks to defend democracy, to enhance the public good and to stop the erosion of the public sphere. It works to accomplish this goal through a combination of research, issue advocacy, public education and direct action organizing. Since 1999, Grassroots Leadership has worked to abolish all for-profit prisons, jails, and detention centers, as a step towards establishing a criminal justice system that is truly humane and just. Si has co-authored The Fox in the Henhouse, a "wake up call for all who care about our democracy and the assault on public services."
