NEBLSA's Week of Service: Celebrating Founder's Day

Our regional Founder's Day is on October 26th! 

We hope this year’s Founders Day serves as a defining moment when BLSA chapters across the northeast continue to step up to make our communities more equitable and take action to create the society as described in our mission. While Founder Cooper believed such an organization was possible, he acknowledged and fought for systemic change. His example is our call to action.

This year, NEBLSA has designated the last full week of October (10/23 - 10/29) as a regional week of service to encourage all BLSA members to volunteer to improve their communities. Making time to volunteer for NEBLSA’s Week of Service is a great way to engage with your community while honoring the legacy of BLSA. Whether you plan on cleaning up a public space, mentoring a young person, or assisting those who are food insecure, what you do makes a world of difference.

Check out our partners/collaborators below! Please inform your chapter leaders on the service hours you've committed to during our Week of Service to ensure accurate reporting.
