Meet neighbors, build community, strengthen Berkeley

Berkeley, California (Friday, July 29, 2016) - Join a gathering in Berkeley on Tuesday for National Night Out, an effort to build safer and healthier communities by making and strengthening relationships and neighborhoods.

Berkeley events -- from potlucks and barbecues to simpler gatherings -- have been organized for August 2nd. In addition to meeting neighbors, you'll also have a chance to network and meet with City of Berkeley employees from a number of departments. Staff from Police and Fire to Public works will be visiting events all over the City.

National Night Out is part of a nationwide effort to building stronger communities -- a key goal for a better Berkeley that's supported by many City departments. Residents and community groups organized 76 events this year.

Find a gathering near you, using the list of registered block parties.

Strong neighborhoods also lay a foundation for resiliency, strengthening response after a disaster. Learn how you can help prepare your neighborhood for disaster through the City's Office of Emergency Services. As an incentive to organize your block, the Office of Emergency Services, in conjunction with Public Works, offers free dumpsters once a year to Berkeley neighbors who regularly collaborate through certain City programs, including National Night Out.
