About Us

Who We Are

West Indianapolis Neighborhood Congress (WINC) is a resident-led and operated organization. We believe that people who live in our neighborhood should be heard before decisions are made that will impact our daily lives. We stay in contact with neighbors, various organizations, and leadership to make sure everyone has a chance to be informed and weigh in on the things that impact us directly. We are all volunteers who live here, and we all have a voice that counts.

Our Story

WINC formed over 50 years ago to give West Indy a voice when I-70 and Harding Street plans became a reality that would physically divide our neighborhood. Since the 1970s, we have continued to engage neighbors and leadership on various quality of life issues. Today, we are a registered, nonprofit, resident-led and operated organization.
