Some Basic Information about NOAH and our Policies

Nashville Organized for Action and Hope (NOAH) is an anti-racist faith-based coalition that is multiracial, multigenerational, and interfaith comprised of congregations, community organizations, and labor unions that work to amplify the power of ordinary people.  Our stated vision is to help transform Nashville into a city that is anti-racist and just and equitable for all people.  Our stated mission is to combat systemic injustices through community engagement, training, and direct public action. 

NOAH leaders care deeply about racial justice and equal opportunity.  The NOAH Personnel Committee, Finance Committee, and Executive Committee are comprised of members who are diverse in race and gender. We strive for racial and economic justice, have done so since our founding, and will continue to do so.  Our employment decisions are based on a number of factors, including prior experience.  Any claim of employment discrimination against NOAH is unequivocally false.

NOAH’s four key focus issues, determined by its members, are: affordable housing, criminal justiceeconomic equity, and education.

 

SYSTEMIC RACISM 

NOAH attests that systemic racism exists in every aspect of our society, perpetuating injustices socially, economically, and politically. It is NOAH’s intent to help expose and dismantle racism in any issues it chooses to address, especially the focus areas determined by its members: affordable housing, criminal justice, economic equity and jobs, and education.
