Community Organizing and Advocacy

Bridge Street Development Corporation’s Community Engagement team works block by block to empower residents to become active citizens who are fully involved in the improvement of their community. We help residents interested in advocacy to form a united voice to speak to elected officials, private developers, and city agencies about issues of concern to their communities.
