NCoC Volunteer Opportunity and a Participatory Budgeting Victory in NYC

Posted by on September 21, 2018 at 3:21 PM

As you may know, the National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC) is hosting its Annual Conference on Citizenship on October 17th and 18th in Washington, D.C. What you probably don’t know is that the NCoC needs you to make sure the event is a success. Specifically, the NCoC is looking for volunteers for the conference. This is a great opportunity to learn more about our democratic systems and support an organization that is dedicated to strengthening civic life in America. For more information please contact Angela Holden at aholden@ncoc.org.

In other news, Bridge Alliance member Participatory Budgeting Project just announced a huge victory. The New York City Charter Reform Commission voted to include a citywide participatory budgeting program measure on the November general election ballot. If voters approve the measure, Mayor de Blasio would launch the largest participatory budgeting process in the nation. You can read more about the measure here.

As always, thank you for your support,

Sincerely,

Bridge Alliance Education Fund
