The Neighborhood Resources Connection (NRC), in cooperation with the City of South Bend, will host its first annual Neighborhoods United South Bend (NUSB) Summit on Saturday, October 19. Themed “Engaging Neighbors-Empowering Community,” it will take place on the campus of IU South Bend beginning at 9:00 a.m. in the Administration Building, 1700 E. Mishawaka Avenue.
The featured keynote speaker is Majora Carter, a nationally renowned urban strategist and urban environmental and economic justice advocate.

The summit, designed to support and celebrate neighborhood involvement, will include: community awards, open forum discussions, and roundtable break-outs covering a variety of community development topics. This day-long event is free of charge and open to South Bend Neighborhood residents. Advanced registration is required and limited to the first 120 participants.
