Organizing Opportunities

The Organizers’ Circle

NBN’s organizers circle is the place where neighborhood leaders and activists come to get refreshed, refueled and recharged. Hosted every Tuesday from 12pm -2pm by NBN staff the Organizers’ Circle is a floating brown bag lunch open to local residents and triad visitors.

It is THE place where organizers relax, relate and refresh while sharing the local, state, and federal news of the day and its impact on everyday people.

Open to the public—Lunchtime is the right time to connect, share and learn from leaders just like you and build relationships that make great partnerships and friends.

The Organizer's Circle is hitting the road in 2018. Meetings will be held throughout the city.
