In 1993, Carter was one of the six co-founders of Southerners On New Ground (SONG) and she served as its Executive Director. Founded in Durham, NC with current offices in Atlanta and outposts throughout the South, SONG’s purpose is to build progressive movements across the South by developing transformative models of organizing that connect race, class, culture, gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Specifically, SONG integrates work against homophobia into freedom struggles in the South. SONG will be celebrating its 20th anniversary next year in 2013.
Mandy is one of three co-editors of the new book, We have not been moved:Resisting Racism and Militarism in 21st Century America, and we look forward to hearing her thoughts on the current state of intersectional politics as well as listening to her reflections on where we have been.
We invite activists from all parts of Georgia (and beyond) to join us in celebrating our (nearly) forty year histories of this work and to talk more about the exciting futures of our organizations and our movements.
