ROP is thrilled to announce that Stephanie Guilloud from Project South in Atlanta will be the keynote speaker at ROP’s Rural Caucus and Strategy Session in Albany on April 10th.
Stephanie grew up in Texas before spending nearly a decade in the Northwest where she was a leader in shutting down the WTO in Seattle in 1999. In her time at Project South, Stephanie has worked with local community groups in the South and across the country to build stronger movements that are owned and led by grassroots leaders. In 2007, Stephanie and Project South organized as the anchor group of the first ever US Social Forum.
We are so excited to welcome Stephanie to rural Oregon and share movement strategies with one of the most exciting organizations in the US today. But, we’ve got to get her here! If you’ve got frequent flyer miles that we can put towards Stephanie’s ticket from Atlanta, please let ROP know!
