Organizing Resources

Neighborhood Organizing is an amazing way to implement the vision you and your neighbors share. Whether you're coming together for a specific cause or just to build relationships, its always a good idea to know your neighbors and your community. Below we have listed some resources that can help you on your journey through neighborhood organizing. We are also available as a resource, email us at info@feccindy.com.

by Indianapolis Neighborhood Resource Center

INRC's Organizer's Workbook is an amazing resource to guide you through the information you'll use and need to reach your organizing goals. "The goal of this book is not to tell you to "fix" neighborhood problems, but to demonstrate how to recognize the assets, to provide the lessons and to empower our communities so that we can build our communities and neighborhoods for ourselves."

KIB's Great Indy Cleanup (GIC) is an anti-litter, community empowering program in partnership with the City of Indianapolis. We provide resources to people who want to lead the charge against heavy litter, illegal dumping, and debris in the public spaces in their neighborhood. The best part? GIC encourages people to work together. By coordinating a community cleanup, you can make a visible difference and inspire your neighbors to make a difference too! (kibi.org)
