A reader named Amanda passed this along to me and I, in turn am going to pass it along to you as it sounds very interesting
In partnership with the Newtown Creek Alliance, HabitatMap invites you to participate in a community mapping workshop at LaGuardia Community College on the evening of Monday, October 20th from 6:30-8:30… At the Newtown Creek Neighborhoods Community Mapping Workshop participants will:
- discover how web-based tools can magnify the impact of community organizing campaigns;
- hear from experienced organizers who have been active in the Newtown Creek Neighborhoods for decades; and
- learn how to navigate and mine city, state, and federal databases for information relevant to their own personal health and the health of their families and communities.
Participants should come prepared to begin mapping their neighborhoods so bring any relevant documents and photos but most importantly, bring your ideas.
The Newtown Creek Neighborhoods Community Mapping Workshop will be held at LaGuardia Community College, building E, room 228… The entrance to building E is located at 31-10 Thomson Ave. between 31st St. and Van Dam St.
