The Campaign for Southern Equality understands that funding alone is not enough to sustain grassroots LGBTQ leaders and amplify the impact of their work. They also need a continuous flow of resources, including relationships with peer organizers, individualized coaching, and training. That’s why in 2019 we’re hosting a series of three grassroots training webinars to support organizers on the ground. RSVP, then read more about the webinars!

Old Southern Ways: A Pilot Project On LGBTQ Healing Justice in the South
Wednesday, September 18, 6:30-8:00pm ET
While working to build a South where LGBTQ people are equal in every sphere of life, The Campaign for Southern Equality (CSE) is also including healing, wellness and resilience work as a part of that vision. This interactive webinar will discuss CSE’s healing justice pilot project that includes using somatics as a theory of change and as a healing modality. For approximately one year, CSE has been practicing somatics in their inward facing staff support work. Holiday Simmons, The Resident in Healing and Resilience, will share lessons from the first year of the project, plans for the second year, and answer questions. Staff and leaders of organizations, wellness practitioners, and anyone seeking to bridge the gap between social justice and healing justice are all encouraged to attend.
