participatory budgeting: Democracy in action!

 

Participatory Budgeting (PB) NYC gives real power to people to allocate real money. Over 16,000 New Yorkers voted for up to five projects between March 29 and April 6. Improvements to schools, parks, libraries and public housing were on the ballot!! Voting for projects represents the kind of common sense solution that is hard to disagree with: people having direct say over how money in their communities should be spent. CVH is also spending our time advocating for institutionalization and expansion. Stay tuned for next cycle.... we're looking at a dramatic expansion to over 20 participating Council districts!

In our role as Communy Engagement Lead, CVH deployed an energetic team of organizers and canvassers to boost outreach efforts and focus on traditionally disengaged populations.
