Our Neighborhood

CANA brings everyday citizens into honest conversations with local decision-makers and helps get the voice of our neighborhood heard! We have led numerous successful campaigns that produced real change in Madison, WI through events, presentations, and online petitions organized by our dedicated members. CANA fosters civic engagement, builds community power, and advocates for people of the UW campus area. When founded in 2020, CANA expanded on the prior State-Langdon neighborhood.



Our Campaigns

We work to ensure our community has the knowledge, resources, and opportunities to be a voice of change and power in our city. We see our campaigns as collective efforts, so we provide ways to connect and build a stronger collective voice.
