Participatory Budgeting in NYC: Thinking Critically and Looking Forward

Presented by the Center for New York City Affairs at The New School.

New York City is experiencing a new kind of democracy. Through participatory budgeting, residents of eight City Council districts deliberated and voted this year on how best to spend about $10 million of public money for capital projects in their districts. Can participatory budgeting help strengthen community infrastructure and residents’ own investment in their neighborhoods? In a city that spends tens of billions of dollars each year on capital projects, can the participatory approach be substantially scaled up? What are its limits?

Panelists:
Josh Lerner
, executive director, Participatory Budgeting Project 
Larian Angelo, vice president for administration and finance, The New Community College at CUNY  
Eve Baron, senior fellow for policy and planning, Pratt Center for Community Development
Michael Freedman-Schnapp, policy director, Office of City Councilmember Brad Lander, 39th District
Alexa Kasdan, director of research and policy, Urban Justice Center
Melissa Mark-Viverito, member, New York City Council, 8th District  

Moderated by:
Jarrett Murphy, editor-in-chief, City Limits

Admission is free, but you must RSVP.

 

The Center’s public policy forums are made possible thanks to the generous support of the Milano Foundation.
