Together New Orleans is a broad-based coalition of congregations and community-based organizations in the greater New Orleans area, with the capacity to address community problems large and small. The coalition is deliberate about crossing the lines of race, religion, neighborhood, and political affiliation. We work on issues affecting families and communities, and we are a strictly non-partisan organization.
We have three basic goals:
- to build relationships across our community based on trust and a willingness to listen to each other,
- to equip our members and leadership with skills and practices to get results, and
- to achieve change on concrete issues, as part of our common call to justice.
Together New Orleans is part of the Industrial Areas Foundation (IAF), the nation’s oldest and largest broad-based organizing network. There are more than 65 IAF organizations around the country, including projects in Alexandria, Baton Rouge, the Louisiana Delta, Monroe, and Shreveport-Bossier.
