A CPP links residents, neighborhoods, businesses and government together in a structure that facilitates communication, enables citizen input and increases government effectiveness. CBNO has engaged thousands of New Orleanians for this Charter-mandated program.
The BBMLF identifies emerging community leaders from all sectors of the community, gives them expert inside information about key metropolitan issues, provides exceptional networking opportunities, and stimulates their interest and involvement in community service.
CBNO is a co-founder and member of coalitions such as the Orleans Parish Education Network (OPEN), the New Orleans Coalition on Open Governance (NOCOG), and other vital partnerships that inform and engage community members in collaborative problem-solving.
CBNO is a multi-racial, multi-generational community organization, a catalyst and convener, working to create equity and opportunity for all New Orleanians by developing community leaders, fostering civic engagement, and advocating for open, effective, accountable government. CBNO will accomplish its mission by providing and maintaining an advocacy role that encourages the kinds of partnership, collaboration and candid conversation that reflect the interests of all the residents of New Orleans.
