The National Organizers Alliance (NOA), founded in 1993 by organizers working across the spectrum of progressive social justice movements, has a two-fold purpose. NOA's mission is to advance progressive organizing for social, economic and environmental justice and to sustain, support and nurture the people of all ages who do it. The Archives of the National Organizers Alliance include working papers documenting the activities of the organization, including regional organizing, meeting notes, membership information, video and audio tapes, photographs, and posters. Also documented are recruitment efforts among minority groups, including African Americans and immigrants.
