Ms. Carter has been an anti-racism organizer for the past 39 years. Carter helped found SONG (Southerners on New Ground) at the Durham Creating Change Conference in 1993. Inspired by the vision of black and white southern lesbians, SONG works to build movements for progressive social change across the South by developing models for organizing that connect race, class, culture, gender and sexual identity. Ms. Carter was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize as part of the 1000 Women for the Nobel Peace Prize 2005 to recognize, make visible and celebrate the impressive and valuable, yet often invisible peace work of thousands of women around the world.
