The Neighborhood Leadership and Organizing program wishes to congratulate recent graduates of our Spring 2021 Neighborhoods Now! cohort. Neighborhoods Now! is an innovative community educational series to strengthen the work of individuals and organizations working in neighborhoods so they can organize to win issues for people and places, build power to change systems for racial equity and economic justice, build organizations whose leadership is reflective of the community, and build diverse and effective cross cultural collaborations.
The training was conducted virtually and grounded in our Racial Equity Framework and Lifecycle of Organizing Campaign. We were honored to have 31 neighborhood leaders and organizers representing 25 organizations working in 9+ cities. Because of the training was conducted virtually, we were able to expand its reach to three states–Minnesota, South Dakota and California.
Our next Neighborhoods Now! is September 27-October 1.
