The November COA Membership Meeting was a success! Over 35 people came to the Downtown Library to meet with COA members and our grassroots partners and discuss the important social justice issues of our day. We all know that democracy doesn't end on Election Day, and now that those campaigns are behind us, it's time we double-down on meeting the pressing needs of our communities. From food deserts to gender inequity, to LGBTQ oppression to civil rights violations, Chattanooga's marginalized communities are in a fight for their very survival... a fight that includes us all.

Chances are you've heard of the campaigns going on in Lincoln Park, the Westside, and in the other communities we've worked in. As a grassroots-led organization, those campaigns are led BY the people living in those communities.
But what if you don't live in those communities?
How do you help?
