The Jeremiah Group is a broad-based, institution-based community organization in metropolitan New Orleans.
Jeremiah is comprised of religious congregations and other institutions in the metropolitan New Orleans area, with the mission to transform the practice of politics in this City, from the neighborhood to the metro-level. The organization is multi-racial, multi-issue and currently includes member institutions that are Baptist, Catholic, Episcopalian, United Church of Christ, Church of God in Christ, United Methodist, American Methodist Episcopal and public schools.
The membership is compromised of institutions, not individuals, in order to create the deepest possible constituency in our communities. Membership is open to religious congregations, schools and other community institutions.
