Cleveland Heights and University Heights residents are invited to attend Community-Building for Change—a free public forum and workshop, hosted by FutureHeights and Neighborhood Connections—on Wednesday, Nov. 16, 6:30–8:30 p.m., at the Cleveland Heights Community Center Atrium, 1 Monticello Blvd.

The interactive workshop aims to provide attendees with the knowledge and skills they need to create and maintain strong, effective neighborhood groups, and empower residents to take effective action in supporting and improving their community.

The forum will explore such topics as effective organizing and goal-setting for volunteer organizations, and strategies for creatively solving challenges.

Austin Boxler, director of community involvement at Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization; Erika Brown, community network builder at Neighborhood Connections; and Mary Reynolds Powell, of Resident Voices, will collaboratively lead the interactive workshop and discussion.
