Opportunity Nashville is an advocacy organization focused on improving educational equity in Nashville. Our mission is to ensure that every child in Nashville has access to a high-quality public education.

Opportunity exists where inequities don’t.

We believe that Nashville can be a city where all students are provided the opportunity to succeed in life, but to get there, our city must focus on ending the systemic inequities that exist in our public schools. We seek to create change in Nashville’s public school system through public conversation, democratic participation, and elected representation. Learn about our voter participation initiative.
