The People’s Money: Idea Generation Session with the League of Women Voters

Event Details

This event will take place in person. Walk-ins welcome!

This Fall, the NYC Civic Engagement Commission (CEC) launched “The People’s Money” – NYC’s first-ever citywide participatory budgeting process. All New Yorkers age 11 and up will be able to decide how to spend $5 million of mayoral expense funding.

To kick-off Phase 1, The League of Women Voters will be hosting an idea generation session. This is your opportunity to brainstorm with your community and submit an idea for a better city. In the session you will learn about the city budget cycle, identify community needs, and brainstorm ideas for expense projects. You can also view events as they are scheduled on the NYC Civic Engagement Commission website. Residents can also propose ideas online on the CEC website:   Join the conversation and make a difference in your community!
