Neighborhoods Organizing for Change is a member-led, movement-based organization building power in under-resourced communities of color across the Twin Cities. Based in North Minneapolis, NOC uses community organizing to achieve measurable policy outcomes and meaningful public victories that positively impact the lives of their members and that work toward equity statewide. NOC's strength lies in the leadership of their members, and in their ability to act as an authentic organizing space for people of color from a diverse mix of ethnic identities, sexual identities, gender identities, national identities, languages, racial identities, religious identities, and experiences of diaspora.
