Stand Up Nashville
Stand Up Nashville is a coalition of community based 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 our local communities.
Our Mission is to ensure that public investments in development are leveraged to create economic opportunities for all Nashvillians, pathways to quality, middle-class jobs, and affordable housing so that all communities may benefit from the growth of our city.
Stand Up Nashville is close to Liberation Road.

COVID-19 Town Hall
Austin Sauerbrei-Brown April 27 2020·
When it comes to addressing #COVID19, we need things like paid sick leave, emergency rent relief, mandatory PPE, and access to testing to move forward. But our local government’s hands are tied. We need to Gov. Lee to use his emergency powers to free up our local officials to support working families!
Join us TONIGHT at 7pm EST for a virtual Town Hall highlighting how we can empower our local leaders to address COVID-19 and support working families. We'll hear from local elected officials, workers and organizers on the front lines.
