Today is an exciting day for the Nextdoor team – we are proud to announce that we are teaming up with the City of Oakland to help make Oakland a stronger and safer city. Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and Oakland Police Chief Sean Whent joined Nextdoor Co-Founder and CEO, Nirav Tolia, to announce the news.
This partnership is especially meaningful because several Nextdoor employees live in Oakland, and more than a dozen came out to show their support at today’s press conference.
We’re honored to help more than 160 innovative cities, including some in our very own backyard, use the power of technology to bring back a sense of community to their neighborhoods. Here’s to many more!
You can join or start your own Nextdoor neighborhood here.
