We Are People Powered

Please join with neighbors to support our community-building work ~ become a 2019 member today.

For over three decades, West Broadway Neighborhood Association has been fueling community among neighbors and driving neighborhood improvements. When we’ve come together as neighbors, we’ve accomplished great things.

To this day, WBNA remains people powered.

We invite and even urge you to take part – as an active participant, as a volunteer and as a member. While our challenges over the years have changed, the need to come together and collectively find solutions continues.

  • Your voice matters. JOIN US for our monthly Neighborhood Nights series from 6 to 8pm! This community gathering features topics that matter to you including our Conversation with Elected Officials, neighborhood affordability, Route 6/10 updates, the Cranston Street Armory, and more. Open to everyone, with free pizza, childcare and Spanish interpretation.

  • Your participation is invaluable. TAKE PART in community building events like the 36th Annual WBNA Spring Clean-Up & Cookout on Saturday, April 27 at 9am. Come together with neighbors to clean our streets and parks throughout Federal Hill and the West End.

  • We can’t thrive without your support. BECOME A MEMBER. Membership at any level ensures that we as neighbors continue to have “a place at the table” about issues that are closest to home.

Throughout 2018, WBNA brought a collective voice to the city and state, and catalyzed improvements that benefited all neighbors. Your support will help ensure this work continues in 2019. See below the impact WBNA members had in 2018!
