Nashville Community Organizers group originated as part of the Obama campaign in 2008. In January 2009 we helped defeat the English-only campaign in Nashville.

Since 2009, our members have gone on to do amazing things - one was elected as the first Hispanic Metro Councilman, a couple others also were elected to the Metro Council, several went on to lead the Tennessee Democratic Party, one is now working for Obama for America in Chicago, several have been elected as Chairs of their county Democratic parties, and many others are leaders of progressive community groups in Nashville and surrounding counties.  We now serves as a clearinghouse for Progressive groups and events in the Nashville area, providing our members opportunities to go out and get involved in a variety of groups.

NCO is a group that believes in bringing about change to Nashville and Middle Tennessee.  Will you join us and help make that belief a reality?
