Organizing School

Have you been dreaming of the future where we are living Free From Fear, but need more skills to get your local SONG chapter/crew there? We’ve been hearing SONG members asking for dedicated site-unique skill-ups in order to launch, bolster, and continue campaigns and to have more skills for day-to-day community organizing. We have been listening! We’re holding SONG’s 2021 Squad Up, Skill Up, Slay: Organizing School throughout the summer, where we will bring some of the new energy, skill-sets, and facilitation and leadership styles that our members typically experience in our regional convening spaces. SONG staff will be traveling the South to provide in-person and virtual trainings to four lucky sites. Our goal is to meet the site-specific skill-up needs of chapters and crews who could use more support on:

  • Basebuilding & Outreach
  • Political Education Development
  • Community Organizing & Campaign Basics
  • Communications
  • Electoral Work

Throughout July and August, four crews or chapters will be selected, where we will either gather entirely virtually or hold a half virtual and half in-person gathering with COVID-19 safe precautions taken. Please check the application page for dates and times. We can’t wait to Squad Up, Skill Up and Slay!

Application deadline is June 29, 2021!

Please reach out to Robert-John ( for any questions. In the meantime, be sure to check out our Squad Up, Skill Up, Slay: Street Fighter video series on Facebook or Vimeo.
