UUCG supports SONG


Our 2018 July-through-September Give-Away-the-Plate recipient is SONG — Southerners on New Ground.

This organization, located in Atlanta but active in much of the Old South, is a regional Queer Liberation organization made up of people of color, immigrants, undocumented people, people with disabilities, working class people, and residents of rural areas and small towns.  Its members are committed to community organizing and leadership development.  SONG believes that the South is a key region for building movement power in the 21st century, as it has been in other times: “Oppressive forces have had a regional strategy for the South–so we have one, too.”  The organization’s training and organizing work across issues of race, class, gender, culture, and sexuality involves both LGBTQ people and cis-gender allies.
