COPS/Metro’s strength is in its members: the religious institutions, labor locals, and other nonprofit and civic institutions that share a concern for community and are rooted in traditions of democracy. COPS/Metro is broad-based and works in the interest of our community’s families, as an interfaith organization that embraces a membership of both religious and secular institutions.
As COPS/Metro members, institutions commit to building “organizing teams” or “action teams” of leaders and potential leaders to work on local issues identified by the team. By joining with other institutions that have similar goals and concerns, COPS/Metro members increase their collective power and work to achieve victories on local and city-wide issues. Member institutions pay dues to ensure COPS/Metro has a secure and independent core budget.
Current dues-paying member institutions include:
American Federation of Teachers
Colonial Hills United Methodist
Divine Redeemer Presbyterian
El Divino Salvador United Methodist
First Unitarian Universalist
Friends Meeting of San Antonio (Quakers)
