Nashville People's Budget Coalition
The Nashville People’s Budget Coalition is building a Nashville where public safety includes communities with fully funded education, access to housing and health care, and freedom from policing and jails.

Music City Riders United (MCRU)
Music City Riders United is a group of concerned bus riders working to demand a transit system that benefits all of Nashville. MCRU builds power to put the needs of low-income and disabled riders first and puts the spotlight on the racist structures in Nashville’s public transit. For the riders, by the riders!

No Exceptions Prison Collective
No Exceptions Prison Collective is a grassroots initiative in Nashville, TN, dedicated to transforming the social segregation of prison by advocating that no exceptions be made to the abolition of slavery. We were founded and are led by individuals directly impacted by carceral slavery – both insiders (prisoners) and free world folx.

People's Alliance for Transit, Housing, & Equity (PATHE)
The People's Alliance for Transit Housing and Employment (PATHE) is a coalition that came together because we were tired of city leaders working only for the interests of developers, big corporations, and the rich. Instead, we’ve demanded the city powers that be take necessary steps to address Nashville’s crises in housing, transportation, and employment. We are a coalition of ordinary people — we are renters, unhoused people, transit employees, construction workers, bus riders, students, activists, and other concerned residents who are tired of being pushed out of our neighborhoods and communities in the name of “progress.” We’ve helped change the conversation about who Nashville’s economic boom is benefiting. Now is the time to demand real change in public policy to ensure this growth benefits us all.


Southerners on New Ground Nashville (SONG Nashville)
SONG is an abolitionist political home for LGBTQ liberation across all lines of race, class, abilities, age, culture, gender, and sexuality in the South. We build, sustain, and connect a southern regional base of LBGTQ people in order to transform the region through strategic projects and campaigns developed in response to the current conditions in our communities. SONG builds this movement through leadership development, intersectional analysis, and organizing. The SONG Nashville chapter joins chapters across the south in pushing a demand to #EndPretrialDetention + #EndMoneyBail.

Workers' Dignity/Dignidad Obrera
Workers’ Dignity is a worker-led center organizing for economic justice and dignity for all. We believe people directly impacted by injustice, especially low-wage workers facing abuse by employers, bus riders confronting transit racism, and immigrants facing increased ICE raids and detention, are ideally situated to have the knowledge and capacity to create sustaining and equitable change.
If you are interested, please put a check by any organizations you are interested in joining or finding out more about.
