Join Us in Taking the Good Neighbor Pledge

Written by #TeamNextdoor

It’s our purpose and responsibility to create a platform where everyone feels welcome. As we continue to state: Racism has no place on Nextdoor, and we are committed to doing the important work to make this happen. To achieve this, we must all come together. 

Starting today, we invite our members around the globe to join us in a communal good neighbor pledge — this is a new, pocket-size version of our Community Guidelines that will greet every member upon entering Nextdoor.

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn

We want Nextdoor to be a place where neighbors are respectful and accepting this pledge will be required to use Nextdoor. We also encourage all neighbors, no matter how long you’ve been on Nextdoor, to read our Community Guidelines which we recently updated to be more clear. On Nextdoor, you’re connected to a diverse group of people in a shared community — your neighborhood. Together, we can build a strong one.

Positive, meaningful, lasting change takes time. We’re committed to not only the work but also to sharing progress of that work so please continue to check our blog for updates. 

Thank you for being a part of our community and joining us on this journey to create a Nextdoor where everyone feels welcome. 


  • I think this is greatly needed and the solution or perhaps the warning to some, before their account is deactivated. Thank you!

  • Sarah, I could not agree with you more that racial issues should not be discussed on Nextdoor. When i joined many years ago the comments involved lost animals, recommendations on local businesses, and meeting new people,etc. I would like to suggest that politics, political surveys also be taken down. They only increase animosity among the members. There are plenty of other sites for expressing ones opinion.

  • Wonderful idea! Its about time we state it outloud to the world! I love all people who’s beauty shines from within and dont focus on the color of skin! Thanks

  • In my opinion there are there topics never to be openly discussed on Nextdoor:

    1) Religion
    2) Politics
    3) Race

    Thank you for all the work you do to make Nextdoor a pleasant experience.
