National Night Out: America’s Night Out Against Crime

Written by Anne Dreshfield

Today, communities across the country are gathering at neighborhood block parties, parades, and meetings in order to get to know their neighbors and build safer communities in honor of National Night Out (NNO)*. Started in 1984 by the National Association of Town Watch, NNO is celebrated annually by more than 37 million people in over 15,000 communities across the county.

We’re proud to be an official sponsor of NNO for the third year in a row.

Neighbors use Nextdoor to organize their NNO events and to keep their neighborhoods safe all year long. Nextdoor members are passionate about keeping their communities connected and safe – whether that means using Nextdoor to spread the word about NNO every year or reporting criminal activity in their neighborhoods.

Coming together with our communities is an important part of building stronger and safer places to call home. This year, Nextdoor employees across the country are heading to NNO events in their neighborhoods to meet with neighbors, celebrate our local communities, and chat about Nextdoor.
