Budgeting for Democracy Call to Action

SHOW UP & BE HEARD! 
Join NPN at next Tuesday’s BUDGET HEARING 
November 13, 1:30 – 3:30p
LUNCH WILL BE PROVIDED AT NPN’s OFFICE from 12:30 – 1:00p

As a next step to the Budgeting for Democracy campaign petition, we want to show City Council that New Orleans residents WANT and NEED to be included in the city’s budgeting process by collectively attending the afternoon session of next Tuesday’s Budget Hearing in a show of solidarity. We feel that Tuesday afternoon’s hearings will be an ideal time to illustrate collective support for the Budgeting for Democracy campaign since the Mayor’s Office will be present.

 

NPN is offering transportation to and from City Hall for residents that may need it, as well as lunch prior to the hearing at our offices. We encourage you to wear black and NPN will hand out blue ribbons, so that City Council can see a clear visual connection among our group.

 

PLEASE RSVP HERE, so that we can make sure to have enough lunch provided and/or transportation arranged.

 

It’s OUR city, OUR money; WHO decides?

NOCOG’s ‘Budgeting for Democracy’ campaign aims to create a social and political environment in which community members can be actively involved in the city budgeting process. We believe that community input strengthens the ability of the City Council to utilize tax dollars in the most effective manner and empowers all residents of New Orleans.   __________________________________________________________________________
