Descripción

Southerners On New Ground (SONG) is a regional Queer and Trans Liberation organization made up of Black, Indigenous, and people of color, immigrants, undocumented people, disabled folks, poor and working-class, rural and small town, LGBTQ people in the South. We believe that we are bound together by a shared desire for ourselves, each other, and our communities to survive and thrive. We believe that Community Organizing is the best way for us to build collective power and transform the South. 

“We are looking for the people who are looking for us.” 

SONG is hiring! In the midst of continued political attacks and an ongoing need to increase our internal capacity, SONG is planting seeds of renewal and building a team of the willing. Our staff is a beautiful tapestry of brilliant, passionate freedom fighters. The recipe for success includes team members who bring deep organizing backgrounds, popular education skills, and astute political analyses. 

We’re looking for everything listed in the job description below, and believe there is a person out there who is looking for this particular portal: one who is ready to roll up their sleeves and join shoulder-to-shoulder with us to do the unique work required to steward SONG into its next powerful stage. This person has long experience in the overlap of these circles: grassroots organizing, nonprofit management and LGBTQIA+ community building with all of its promises and all of its challenges. We seek a person who resonates with the following ideas: “low ego, high impact”; interdependence; and who is “willing to be transformed in the service of the work.” Is that you?
