At the last board meeting, members voted unanimously to welcome MN Neighborhoods Organizing For Change as our twenty-seventh organizational member.
NOC is a non-profit organization committed to building power in low-income and moderate-income neighborhoods through community organizing, civic engagement, political mobilization, and education. NOC is a member-funded and member-run organization that takes on the social and economic justice issues that impact our community the most. Whether it’s huge issues like healthcare and bank reform, or a small neighborhood concern like getting a stop sign installed at a dangerous intersection, NOC members work together to apply their collective strength and get things done.
NOC is also a part of Minnesotans For a Fair Economy. During October's Week of Action they highlighted the cost of big bank foreclosures to the Minneapolis Public School district and joined in the different actions throughout the week, culminating in the shutdown of the intersection outside Wells Fargo's downtown Minneapolis headquarters.
