Norte Advocate Academy, 2020


Norte is thrilled to offer our third Advocate Academy. The academy is an opportunity to develop a greater understanding of how decisions shaping your community are made and how to impact them positively. At the end of the program, graduates can tackle that needed sidewalk extension, safer crosswalk, protected bike lane, or park in need of some love in their neighborhood. Graduates also build lasting connections to other advocates – natural allies for future campaigns!
