NYC Charter Revision Commission (Online) Town Hall
While NYC might not have direct democracy, it does have a Charter Revision Commission. This commision gives the people the power to rewrite the City’s constitution. In an era where democracy seems under attack, over the course of 24 months, NYC will have hosted TWO Charter Revision Commissions! This town hall will be open for you to ask questions via YouTube live and a Slido link (to be published). Read more about the Charter Revision Commission via BetaNYC's blog. < >
