The determination and passion of New Orleans inspires us. When we see a good idea on Neighborland, the first question we ask ourselves is “Who’s working on this idea already?” Many of the most popular ideas posted are not new. They are important, difficult problems that the community has been working on for years. We want Neighborland to connect people who share common ideas and issues, and them help them turn ideas into meaningful action.
Is Neighborland in my city?
Now we’re firing up Neighborland in cities across the U.S. to give residents time to share their ideas and insights. We’ve just started working on the ground in Houston, Las Vegas, Oakland, San Francisco, and the five boroughs of New York — Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and Manhattan. We’ve also fired up the tool for residents in: Austin, BatonRouge, Boulder, Chicago, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh,
Portland, Saint Paul, Seattle, St. Louis, and Washington, D.C.
We have been collaborating with a group of inspiring local leaders including: Alderman Danny Solis in Chicago; Daniel Homsey at Neighborhood Empowerment Network in San Francisco; Zakcq Lockrem at Washington Livable Centers in Houston; and Jaime Kopke at the Denver Art Museum. If you’d like to partner with us on the launch of Neighborland in your city, or are interested in joining our team, let us know.
