Who We Are

Stand Up Nashville is a coalition of community organizations and labor unions that represent the working people of Nashville who have seen our city transformed by development, but have not shared in the benefits of that growth.

We believe that development and growth are an opportunity to invest and strengthen all of our local communities.

What We Do

We bring together diverse organizations to organize and advocate for our communities, and report on the real life impact of development in all of Davidson County.  We focus on creating change through three primary areas:

Government Accountability

Increasing transparency by monitoring Metro Boards, Commissions and Authorities

Community Benefits

Crafting agreements that allow development to create economic opportunities and housing for all communities

Smart Policy

Working with the Mayor and Metro Council to create policies that drive Equitable Development
