Neighborhood Leadership Academy: Inner Suburbs

July 16 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

NLA is a day-long training session that develops and equips community members with strategies they need to organize neighborhoods and volunteer-led groups.

  • How land use and public policy affect your neighborhood
  • How to advocate for housing policy
  • What a Block Talk is and its underlying principles
