Nik Belanger serves as the Organizing Director of Virginia Organizing. In 2010, Nik joined the staff of Virginia Organizing as the Southside Organizer and worked to build local chapters in Danville and Martinsville/Henry County.
A native of Louisiana, Nik moved to Virginia in 2006 to attend the College of William and Mary. It was at a Bible study hosted by the Wesley Foundation, the campus ministry of the United Methodist Church, that Nik first learned about Virginia Organizing and the Williamsburg Chapter’s local affordable housing campaign.
“Virginia Organizing helped me put my faith in action and empowered me to do something about the issues that mattered to me. And we’re doing the same thing for Virginians across the state today.”
