SSJ is one of more than 65 organizations that constitute The Majority, a broad-based coalition of Black, indigenous, people of color and multiracial groups on the political left convened by the Movement for Black Lives in 2017. The Majority includes a wide range of forces—labor, youth, and feminists: activists working toward abolition, immigrant rights, and economic and environmental justice; and activists working against climate change, war and imperialism. Barbara Ransby and Leith Mullings represent SSJ in the coalition and are part of the Majority’s leadership team.
In addition to organizing a delegation to the southern border, SSJ has worked with The Majority on a “Think and Action Tank on Racial Capitalism,” a two-day convening attended by 25 people representing various activist organizations. SSJ members Robin Kelley, Leith Mullings, Premilla Nadasen and Barbara Ransby participated in organizing and implementing the Think and Action Tank. We subsequently created a two-part video documenting some of the highlights of the convening which was distributed to the member organizations of The Majority (see below). As we develop our organizational structure, one of our priorities is to facilitate our members’ involvement with The Majority.
