FUREE members promote Participatory Budgeting in Councilmember Levin's District
FUREE members have been knocking on doors and chatting with our neighbors about an exciting new opportunity to advance accountable development in our communities.
Council Member Stephen Levin is empowering residents in the 33rd District to engage in a bottom-up process of deciding how $1million will be spent on physical improvements within the community (like parks, schools and transportation). And FUREE is on board, energizing our members, and making sure low-income people of color and public housing residents are at the table in the diverse district.
In a process called "Participatory Budgeting", residents will come together to propose how that $1million should be spent to improve our neighborhoods via a series of Neighborhood Assemblies. Later on, residents will also be voting on which projects we like best.
This is YOUR chance to be involved in the democratic process, whether or not you're a citizen or even registered to vote!
