Neighborhoods Now! one graduation - Neighborhood Issues Organizing

August 13 marked the ending of MCNO’s first Neighborhoods Now! course - Neighborhood Issues Organizing. We celebrated all the hard work by the participants through a potluck and ceremony in which participants shared what they learned and how they are using it in their work. Throughout the course, we engaged in discussions around the basics of neighborhood organizing, building a base, conducting community power analyses, messaging, and leadership development. Are you interested in developing leaders in your community or organization? If so, then register for our next course on Neighborhood Systems Change or click here to learn more.

At the end of the last class before participants headed into their fieldwork, folks gathered in a circle and shared one thing they will commit to doing.
