For the first time in 12 years, Brooklynites are welcoming a new mayor and a new borough president, in addition to many new city council members. How will your community’s concerns be heard by these new representatives?
Brooklyn Community Foundation is joining a coalition of NYC-based foundations to convene “Talking Transition” – a major new initiative to capture the collective views and ideas of residents across New York City.
Each day now through November 23rd, across the city and at an outdoor headquarters on 6th Avenue and Canal Street in Manhattan, dozens of events and thousands of conversations will transform what is typically an insular, closed-door process between Election Day and Inauguration into an opportunity for broad public engagement.
We are also encouraging and supporting our nonprofit grantees’ participation in Talking Transition, to shape programming, elevate their causes, and inform the Mayor’s agenda.
Visit talkingtransitionnyc.org for more information, including a schedule of events and list of city-wide locations where you can get involved in this exciting debate and dialogue on New York’s next chapter.
