About Us

Art for a small button parodying the anti-atomic power sun button. This one says: "More Neighbors? Yes Please! #n4mn" and features an avocado with a smiling avocado pit in the center.

More Neighbors? Yes, please!

Neighbors for More Neighbors stands up for secure, abundant homes for everyone in the Twin Cities.

We envision a future where we all find secure, affordable homes in neighborhoods we choose. Those neighborhoods may include great transit, a community where family and friends are neighbors, or complete neighborhoods with walkable errands and jobs. As we move through our lives, we find smaller and larger homes as our needs change, while staying in communities we love. We imagine a day where this is true for everyone: owners and renters, and people of all ethnicities and income levels.

We organize to
1. Address our Housing Crisis,
2. Create Complete Neighborhoods, and
3. Slow Climate Change

Act

If you share these values, join us! Volunteer or sign up for the mailing list. Or, become a member. Or like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter. A lot of the work requires countering a vocal minority that maintain exclusionary housing policies, and we can’t do that without you!

While N4MN started out as art, distributing buttons like these, today Neighbors for More Neighbors stands up for secure, abundant homes for everyone in the Twin Cities. We’ve been up to some cool things the past couple of years. Read about them here:
