The Unitarian Universalist Association is excited to announce Caitlin Breedlove as our new Campaign Director for Standing on the Side of Love.
Since 2003, Caitlin has been organizing and doing movement building work in the South with communities across race, class, culture, gender and sexuality. Caitlin began her work in the South doing popular education and organizer training at the historic Highlander Center in Tennessee. For the past nine years, Caitlin has been the Co-Director of Southerners On New Ground (SONG), where she has co-led some of the most innovative intersectional movement building work in the LGBTQ sector. Under Caitlin’s co-leadership, SONG Caitlin has led campaigns, built new alliances, trained a large cohort of new LGBTQ organizers in the South, built a membership of over 3,000, and led countless political education processes for SONG’s constituency. Caitlin is known across social justice movements as a leader, strategist, and writer connecting LGBTQ, racial and economic justice.
As we move Standing on the Side of Love to its next level of work during these historic times in our fights for justice, the UUA is proud to welcome Caitlin’s skills and experience into the newly created Campaign Director position. We look forward to welcoming Caitlin to the Campaign in January 2016.
