Shape Civic Engagement in NYC

Shape Civic Engagement in NYC


Here in New York City, we're experiencing a crisis of participation and trust in our civic institutions — even though our capacity for constructive activism is very high.

The good news? New Yorkers just voted to create a Commission on Civic Engagement to implement citywide participatory budgeting, expand language access at poll sites, and breathe new life into our democracy.  

Since the Commission has yet to be developed, we want your ideas for what you think it should do. Please sign the petition below to share your thoughts and stay updated on its progress.
