Statewide Organizing for Community eMpowerment

SOCM is a 50 year old, member-driven organization that utilizes civic involvement and collective action to empower rural and urban Tennesseans to have a greater voice in determining their future. We believe that extraordinary change is rooted in the power of ordinary people.

Together, our members work towards a Tennessee where all people are treated with dignity, where our environment is preserved and protected, and where corporations and public officials are held accountable to the needs of the people.


Our Current Work

SOCM's quarterly newsletter, The SOCM Sentinel, is full of stories and updates on the important work our members are doing. Find out what we've been up to by browsing the Sentinel.



Get involved. Make a difference.
