Strong Towns Members Share their Neighborhood-Boosting Success Stories


Strong Towns announces member-led webinars in the Strong Towns Facebook group, where, every month, a member of the Strong Towns movement joins a Strong Towns staffer to share their unique expertise and how you can use it to make your community stronger.


Converse with a member of Strong Towns and you’ll discover that this movement is much more than a group that kindly donates to our modest nonprofit; it’s a movement of Strong Citizens from all walks of life—citizens to leaders, professionals to neighbors, and everyone in between—that actively take action to make their communities stronger. 

They start local food movements to ensure their neighbors have access to healthy food. They create traffic calming interventions to #slowthecars on dangerous streets. They even include the movement in their school curriculum (seriously).

In short, they’re the experts in their unique place in demonstrating the Strong Towns approach to creating stronger cities, towns, and neighborhoods.

That’s why, in the Strong Towns Facebook group, we’ve launched member-led webinars: a monthly webinar where a member of the Strong Towns movement, joined by a Strong Towns staffer, share their unique expertise and how you can use it to make your community stronger.

For example, in early September, Strong Towns - Sioux Falls organizers Jordan Deffenbaugh and Clinton Brown shared their fun, yet incredibly effective, monthly event, Citizen Taco, and how it nudges their neighbors to action (watch the webinar replay here)

And, on Wednesday, October 3, Strong Towns member Andrew Kelsey will share how you can create those beloved value per acre analyses that you’ve seen on the site (like here and here). Andrew has said those analyses complement his advocacy well when discussing proposed developments with his elected officials. 

(Unavailable to watch it live? No worries: we’ll publish the recordings of all member-led webinars in the Strong Towns Community site.)

The Strong Towns movement includes over 2,000 members across North America and beyond using their unique skills and perspectives to make their communities stronger. Now, you can join the Strong Towns Facebook group to get the insights and inspiration you need to make your community stronger, as well.
