Talking Transition Seeks to Empower Public to Shape New York City's Future
With the election of New York City's first new mayor in 12 years comes an opportunity to continue engaging the public in discourse that often fades after the ballots are cast. Talking Transition is a nonpartisan effort to empower New Yorkers as Bill de Blasio takes office. From November 9th through 23rd,events will be held across the city, giving residents a platform to learn, ask questions, and share opinions about their city's public policy. A number of Rockefeller Brothers Fund grantees are participating, including Make the Road New York, the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance, and the New York Immigration Coalition, among others. Talking Transition's home base is in Lower Manhattan, where a tent has been set up and will be open to the public daily.
