Membership Convenings

SCEN Convenings are held bi-annually, each time in a different location of the Southeast. These in-person meetings are a powerful tool since they allow participants to further understand the work being done by our members and other organizations that focus specifically on the betterment of the Southeast and our nation. Through Convening Sponsorship's, SCEN has helped cover all convening expenses as well as stipends for participants from smaller grassroots and front-line organizations who are SCEN members (over $7,500 provided in 2019 alone). And overall, the organization has been able to re-grant $160,000+ in small grants to its members to ensure active participation of grass-root communities at the convenings celebrated until this day. In 2019, SCEN held Convenings in Birmingham, Alabama and in Florence, South Carolina.
