Southerners On New Ground (SONG)

TLC@SONG combines the Transgender Law Center’s (TLC) powerful transgender legal support and advocacy with Southerners On New Ground’s (SONG) southern-based grassroots, LGBTQ multi-racial community empowerment, and organizing among LGBTQ people of color – specifically transgender people of color – a constituency at risk and deeply affected by HIV.

TLC@SONG engages LGBTQ Southerners in strategic organizing projects to change and challenge the political conditions that criminalize and endanger LGBTQ people, Black people, immigrants, women, people living with HIV, youth, and poor/working class people; support HIV organizations to integrate organizing strategies and methods into their work; and engage key leaders and members in leadership development opportunities and regional convening.
