We believe that the path towards a better city can be made by the people themselves. We're proud to count ourselves as part of a larger struggle for social justice, especially in the American South.
COA will always organize from an anti-racist and feminist perspective and we're proud to stand with all marginalized communities in our city. Our focus right now is on what we call a tripartite crisis of housing, economy, and democracy that threatens to rend Chattanooga into two cities: one where a dwindling number of people do well while the rest suffer.

All movements have a vision fueling their desire or a better world. Our vision, together with our values and theory of change, are the core beliefs that we've built our organization on. To learn more about our values and theory of change, check out our Principles of Unity.
Just holding beliefs is only have the equation. In order to change the world, action is required. Praxis, or when theory meets practice, is the real test of any organization and movement. We hold monthly membership meetings and welcome all interested!
Our next meeting will be Wednesday, March 16th, at 6pm at 1918 Union Ave., Chattanooga TN. We look forward to seeing you there!
