People’s Music Network Song of the Month aims to integrate inspiring new songs of freedom and struggle in today’s progressive movements. Each month is designated with a theme related to a specific social justice topic where people are fighting for a better world. Songwriters are invited to submit original songs on that theme. Organizations working for fundamental social and political change related to the theme are invited to participate by promoting and using the songs that are chosen each month and by offering to serve on that month’s Judging Panel. Panel members include songwriters and leaders of partnering organizations selected by the PMN Director. PMN publishes a monthly e-newsletter highlighting the Song of the Month, the names of panel members, and information about the partner organizations and their initiatives.
