ONA believes that people of color, immigrants and those families that live in poverty need to be at the forefront of any effort to change the oppressive conditions that affect their lives. As members of ONA, they form the backbone of the organization, taking leadership in improving their lives through collective action -- by organizing to create change. They build the organization by reaching out to their neighbors, deepen their consciousness through political education, and decide what strategies and tactics the organization uses in its organizing and political gns. ONA's Board of Directors is elected annually and is formed of some of the most committed members. See who's currently serving on the Board of Directors.
Our humble, yet beloved office.
ONA is staffed by a three-person "Coordination Team." This team is responsible for coordinating the organization's activities. Coordinators are hired from within the membership and work between six months and a year in their position before transitioning back. This structure allows members to develop their leadership skills and experience and ensures that the organization remains democratic and accountable. Meet the current Coordination Team.
