Songwriting with a Message

Screen shot from Songwriting with a Message video.

Learn how to write songs about some of the “themes of Self-Advocacy” that Self-Advocates and Allies want to share with others. Advocates in Action has been leading a self-advocacy project about songwriting in self-advocacy. Advocates in Action produced a video that demonstrates the “how to” behind the scenes that goes into writing a song. This resource includes a link to a “video” that is a peek at the Nothing About Us Without Us writing session. We also have a handout with words to some of their songs.
