PROGRESS IS POSSIBLE
The Southern Economic Advancement Project (SEAP) partners with policy thinkers and doers to amplify their efforts and bridge gaps in policy infrastructure. We act as a connector, convener, and policy entrepreneur across issues and states, translating good ideas to the Southern context. Our goal is to advance policies that improve economic security, healthcare access, and environmental justice for all Southerners. SEAP focuses on 12 Southern states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
NEW RESEARCH & FEATURED PROJECTS
Together, we can solve the South's deepest challenges.
The Black Farmer's Guide
In 2020, the SEAP partnered with the Black Belt Justice Center, a fiscal sponsor for the Acres of Ancestry Initiative/Black Agrarian Fund, to launch narratives and advocacy works to bring justice for Black farmers.
