Chapters

Justice Choir chapters lead community events in their local area, and teach others how to sing and lead a variety of songs. More like a civic organization than a typical musical ensemble, a Justice Choir chapter’s programming and messaging revolve primarily around local issues and the urgency of current events. Chapters might use the Songbook as a springboard for empathetic community conversation, partner with other local organizations to bring singing into the movement, or mobilize “pop-up” style to lead group singing at marches, rallies, state buildings, vigils, or anywhere a marginalized sector might need a bigger voice.

Start a Chapter

Justice Choir chapters are set up by the national organization, by application of a potential Chapter leader, and then transferred to that Chapter leader to administer. Chapters comprise a certain geographic area (anything from a school or university campus to an entire city or region), and are the local infrastructure of the national organization.
