Together Baton Rouge is a coalition of more than 40 religious congregations and community-based organizations in the Greater Baton Rouge area. We have three 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;
- to achieve change on concrete issues, as part of our common call to justice.
The coalition began being formed in 2008 and launched two years later as "Together Baton Rouge." Our membership deliberately crosses the lines of race, religion, neighborhood and political affiliation. Together Baton Rouge is will always remain politically non-partisan and will never endorse a candidate for elected office or support a political party. We will take advocacy positions on issues its member institutions decide upon.
