The 19th Ward Community Association, formed in 1965, is one of the oldest Neighborhood Associations in the country. The Association formed to fight racist real estate practices, such as blockbusting and redlining, while purposefully cultivating a neighborhood that is diverse with respect to age, race, and class. We wish to celebrate our differences while uniting us as neighbors. We strive to preserve the residential character of our neighborhood, support our residents, and create opportunities that cultivate community. Learn more about our history from the history committee including a series of videos they made, see our newsletter for recent updates, and check out our events!

We are a member-supported, volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization. While donations and membership dues are crucial to our ongoing projects, anyone who lives in the 19th Ward is welcome to join at no cost. We encourage those who are able to choose the relevant level of support, and everyone can sign up or donate to specific projects at the membership and donation page.

Her introduction struck me as most appropriate for the present moment.  She states, “As we move to create a more perfect union in this cultural revolution we are undergoing, we are creating a new history. Not the top-down […]

Update 19 – December 2020

President’s Message Zola Brown The 19th Ward Convention brought in a new way of communicating and a new President for 2021.  I enjoyed the Convention – especially the panel discussion – but missed the in-person interaction.  I missed trying a new dish or supporting a local pizza business and the raffle. This year was certainly different but necessary. It was good to know so many […]
