The Black Nashville Assembly (BNA) is a participatory democracy, Black organizing, and political engagement project. The BNA is a quarterly assembly of Black people in Nashville. At our assemblies, we discuss the issues that impact our lives, create solutions that will transform the lives of Black people in Nashville, and take collective action to implement those solutions.
This project includes strategic outreach to Black people in Nashville, political education, relationship building, leadership development, community surveys, and community block meetings. Together we are creating a bold political platform, mobilizing Black people to build political power, engaging in issue-based campaigns that align with our political agenda, and holding our elected officials accountable to our visionary demands. We are a political home for people who can't vote, who don't vote, and voters looking for a meaningful reason to vote.
