Organize

The SOA Watch movement has been built up by ordinary people - just like yourself! - who have been moved to change the world around them.  We must continue to organize in our schools, communities, circle of friends, places of worship, dance halls, with our families, at our work and on the streets!

If you can talk about your experience at the vigil, organize a film screening, invite a speaker to your area or hand out literature, you're an organizer!  There are many ways to bring the vigil home.

Whether you're a seasoned organizer, or you're stepping into it for the first time, check out this important organizing packet to help you start a local SOAW group.

The list below is our most recent information for local groups around the country; it is a work in progress!  If you would like to add your group, please click here. If you have any questions, contact María Luisa at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or the SOAW DC office at 202-234-3440.
