Sustainable Economy/ Energy Democracy (SEED)

Louisiana Energy Democracy Coalition

GCCLP anchors Energy Democracy People's Movement Assemblies across the state as part of the Louisiana Energy Democracy Coalition. 

In 2016, on the heels of the Clean Power Plan, advocates across Louisiana came together for a Peoples Movement Assembly to discuss challenges and envision a new energy future. Anchored by GCCLP, the Alliance for Affordable Energy, Deep South Center for Environmental Justice, and the Sierra Club, the Louisiana Energy Democracy Coalition formed to coordinate a community-driven Louisiana People's Power Plan.

Sustainable Economy People's Movement Assemblies (PMAs)

GCCLP is proud to partner with local leaders in communities across the Gulf South to support and facilitate  People's Movement Assemblies (PMAs). The PMA process is one that builds local power and allows communities to identify their own problems and forge their own solutions. 


These PMAS further: 

  1. Establish a regional network of leadership and build regional movement infrastructure

  2. Offer an Ecological Equity/ Just Transition framework to participants to promote increased civic engagement in creating a renewable energy future for Mississippi.

  3. Provide base-level information on local democratic processes and opportunities to participate.

  4. Strengthen communications infrastructure rooted in climate justice and just transition.

Gulf South Rising Community Controlled Fund

GCCLP was a proud anchor of the 2015 Gulf South Rising (GSR) initiative. We continue to support and facilitate meetings for the GSR Community Controlled Fund. From The GSR Community Controlled Fund (GSR CCF)'s collectively drafted statement of purpose, the fund "promotes just transitions away from extractive practices while dismantling oppressive structures which harm our communities and, ultimately, our ecology. We believe people on and of the land should control what happens to the land; the people of the South must control what happens in the South. This regenerating, community-controlled fund provides resources to foster power and promote togetherness in the region and exists to restore communities and to honor the legacy of strength and resistance in the Gulf South."​
