Let’s Build a Better Greenpoint/Williamsburg Together

Our new President called on ordinary Americans yesterday to work together to get this country back on track. In that spirit, NAG is inviting you to help build the future of a better Greenpoint/Williamsburg.

NAG is on the move with our 2009 Organizing Agenda. Join our working groups at one of these upcoming meetings.

Our Transporation working group is meeting Thursday Jan 22nd at 7pm at Teddy’s backroom to talk about starting a road safety campaign for bikers and drivers and how to fight the proposed cuts in local subway and bus service.
Jan 22, 7pm, 96 Berry Street between N. 8th and N. 9th. Streets

Our Quality-of-Life/Community Character group is also meeting Thursday Jan 22nd at 7pm at the NAG office to review the results of their trash survey and to plan out the North Brooklyn Story Project.
Jan 22, 7pm, 101 Kent Ave at N. 8th Street

Our Open Space group is meeting in early February (the meeting for Jan 27th is being rescheduled) to create a campaign to advocate for opening more waterfront parks.

Our Affordable Housing group is meeting early February to plan out a major event: a housing workshop that will work with all segments of the community on a variety of issues.
