Southerners On New Ground

Vision:  SONG envisions a sustainable South that embodies the best of its freedom traditions and works towards the transformation of current economic, social, spiritual, and political relationships. SONG envisions a world where the 3rd shift factory worker and the drag queen at the bar down the block see their lives as connected and are working together for liberation.

Impact: SONG crafted the first-ever Southern, LGBTQ-led, traveling Organizing School for small towns and rural places all over the South and has trained over 100 Southern and national racial and economic justice organizations to integrate praxis around homophobia and transphobia into their work.
