At the Newtown Creek Neighborhoods Community Mapping Workshop participants will:
(o) discover how web-based tools can magnify the impact of community organizing campaigns;
(o) hear from experienced organizers who have been active in the Newtown Creek Neighborhoods for decades; and
(o) 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.
