This week CALEB members visited Nashville to attend the Board Meeting of our sister organization NOAH - Nashville Organized for Action and Hope. NOAH's success in effective community organizing around affordable housing, economic equity and jobs, and mass incarceration and criminal justice reform has been an inspiration to multiple groups across Tennessee. It was exciting to see the capacity for action that has developed among their 65 member organizations.
NOAH is now undertaking a listening campaign to connect with community members on the issues closest to the heart of the people in Nashville, building to a commitment around potentially new issues this summer. Yet no issue is as important as the capacity of the people to collectively act to produce change.
We look forward to working together as we build power and act on our shared values with organizations across our state! Thanks to NOAH for their hospitality and support.
CALEB is an institutional coalition of faith-based, labor, and community groups working to build power to affect change in Chattanooga, TN.
