“Unprecedented” is the word for 2020.   Tornadoes!  Nashville's financial crisis!  The COVID pandemic exposing long-standing inequities!  A coming tidal wave of evictions from people not able to pay their rent!  The killing of African-Americans by police!  Demonstrations nation-wide!   

On Sunday, October 25, at 3:00 PM, NOAH will hold its first large Zoom Public Meeting: “The Fierce Urgency of Now!”    NOAH task forces will be outlining our work on Criminal Justice, Education, Affordable Housing, and Economic Equity – and what needs to happen NOW!  Local and state decision-makers will be making commitments to act upon these issues that affect us all.   

Mayor John Cooper is attending, as are school officials, state legislative candidates, and Metro Council Members.

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.NOAH_-_Crowd_and_Rev_Thompson_from_behind_-_Public_Meeting_-_Oct_29_2017.jpg

NOAH’S VISION:  Nashville is a city that is anti-racist and just and equitable for all people.

NOAH’s MISSION: To combat systemic injustices through community engagement, training, and direct public action. 



NOAH does not endorse political candidates, but gets them to endorse our issues agenda and pledge to work with NOAH if they are elected.

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



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.
