For Better

No mat­ter who is run­ning things, the peo­ple real­ly have the pow­er. It is our choice to do and be bet­ter for this world. So I’m donat­ing $1 from the sale of every item to ben­e­fit a wor­thy cause. In 2020, pro­ceeds will go to sup­port the Black Resilience Fund, which pro­vides imme­di­ate finan­cial relief to Black Port­landers in the wake of police vio­lence and the pandemic.

Please join me in sup­port­ing grass­roots jus­tice efforts. We just can’t wait. ($1 from sales of Who Run the World one­sies will be donat­ed to South­ern­ers on New Ground, a Black-Led LGBTQ and racial jus­tice orga­ni­za­tion.) We will get there, and we will do it togeth­er. Thanks for help­ing make this happen.

We need healing. We need justice. And that requires action.

The Black Resilience Fund was cre­at­ed as a response to the con­tin­u­al and pre­ventable suf­fer­ing endured by Black com­mu­ni­ties due to sys­temic oppres­sion. Togeth­er, we can make an imme­di­ate pos­i­tive impact for front­line communities.

This fund was intend­ed to pro­vide imme­di­ate relief from finan­cial bur­dens for basic liv­ing expens­es and life emer­gen­cies. Our pri­ma­ry cat­e­gories are: A Warm, Deliv­ered Meal; Gro­ceries; Small Busi­ness Sup­port; Edu­ca­tion / Stu­dent Loans; Electric/Light & Water Bill; Phone & Inter­net Bill; Rent; Cred­it Card Debt; Med­ical; Trans­porta­tion; and Mov­ing Costs.

Southerners on New Ground

A political home for LGBTQ liberation

South­ern­ers On New Ground (SONG) is a region­al Queer Lib­er­a­tion orga­ni­za­tion made up of peo­ple of col­or, immi­grants, undoc­u­ment­ed peo­ple, peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties, work­ing class and rur­al and small town, LGBTQ peo­ple in the South.

SONG is a home for LGBTQ lib­er­a­tion across all lines of race, class, abil­i­ties, age, cul­ture, gen­der, and sex­u­al­i­ty in the South. We 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 the cur­rent con­di­tions in our com­mu­ni­ties. SONG builds this move­ment through lead­er­ship devel­op­ment, inter­sec­tion­al analy­sis, and organizing.
