I Am My Neighbor’s Keeper

Mission Statement

I Am My Neighbor’s Keeper (IAMNK) is a neighborhood campaign designed to engage and empower residents and community stakeholders in Olneyville. We believe that people of the Olneyville neighborhood have the right to respect for their community values, culture, and history. We also firmly believe that members of the community should have the authority to access resources that improve their community, to be consulted on public policies that affect their neighborhood, and to have a strong, united voice that advises officials and organizations on Olneyville’s needs. IAMNK members support the efforts of neighborhood organizations that aim to foster social growth, cultivate economic development, and advance the self-sufficiency of Olneyville residents.  We ask that the actions of neighbors, neighborhood organizations, government officials, businesses and philanthropists are guided by equity, participation and accountability.

As they contribute to building a stronger, more equitable neighborhood, members of the IAMNK movement work together as one #TEAMOLNEYVILLE.
