PATHE stands FOR the ordinary people of Nashville - and AGAINST the greedy

The People's Alliance for Transit Housing and Employment (PATHE) is a coalition that came together because we were tired of city leaders working only for the interests of developers, big corporations, and the rich. Instead, we’ve demanded the city powers that be take necessary steps to address Nashville’s crises in housing, transportation, and employment. We are a coalition of ordinary people — we are renters, unhoused people, transit employees, construction workers, bus riders, students, activists, and other concerned residents who are tired of being pushed out of our neighborhoods and communities in the name of “progress.” We’ve helped change the conversation about who Nashville’s economic boom is benefiting. Now is the time to demand real change in public policy to ensure this growth benefits us all.

Our founding member organizations are as follows:

Music City Riders United 

Democracy Nashville 

Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1235
