Organizing Stories presents a Student-Faculty Activist Workshop with S.O.N.G.

11/20/2020 - 4:30pm to 6:00pm
virtual - requires registration

Join us on Friday, November 20th at 4:30 PM as Organizing Stories presents a Student-Faculty Activist Workshop with S.O.N.G.

Southerners on New Ground (S.O.N.G.) is a home for LGBTQ liberation across all lines of race, class, abilities, age, culture, gender, and sexuality in the South. They build, sustain, and connect a southern regional base of LBGTQ people in order to transform the region through strategic projects and campaigns developed in response to current conditions. 

As a part of the Organizing Stories workshop series, organizers from S.O.N.G. will lead participants through a spirited workshop on how “story circles” can be employed in cultural and intersectional organizing work.

The workshop is open to undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty interested in the intersections between scholarly and activist work. 

All interested participants will receive an event invitation after completing the RSVP form.

Organizing Stories is a student-focused project founded and directed by Professors Autumn M. Womack (English; African American Studies) and Monica Huerta (English; American Studies). The project connects students with veteran organizers in order to investigate the long histories of anti-racist activism, racial justice organizing, and coalition-building as they relate to questions of narrative, storytelling, and humanistic study more broadly.

Organizing Stories is supported by an Exploratory Grant in Collaborative Humanities from the Humanities Council, as well as the Dean of the Faculty, The University Center for Human Values, the Department of African American Studies, and the Princeton African Humanities Colloquium.
