Urban EpiCenter

EpiCenter is a multi-racial, grassroots organization in Nashville-Davidson County, Tennessee. The term, EpiCenter, describes the focal point of a disturbance or activity. The Urban EpiCenter is grounded in the belief that community organizing and direct action for racial and economic justice should be the focal points of social and political activity in the underserved, underrepresented and/or under empowered communities in Nashville. Further, the Urban EpiCenter is deeply rooted in the belief of a radical vision of democracy, which situates indigenous activists, the poor and working-class people at the center, or EpiCenter, of critical, vital and necessary grassroots initiatives.
