New York City’s 2021 citywide elections arrive amidst a public health crisis, economic challenges, increasing threats to our climate, and a reckoning with injustices. Parks play a central role in addressing all of these issues and shaping the future of our communities and city. How do we elevate the urgent needs facing parks, get candidates engaged, and make our voices heard?
This webinar, co-led by New Yorkers for Parks, will help you learn how to advocate for parks and green spaces to support healthy, vibrant neighborhoods ahead of a pivotal election with historic turnover in City government.
Join us to learn:
- Advocacy tips to raise the profile of parks as an urgent issue and how to take action
- The changes NYC will see in city government and the role elected officials play in influencing policies and funding for parks and green spaces
- How ranked-choice voting works and its impact on the election
Registration for this session is required and will close the day before the event. You will receive information on how to join the webinar once you register.
At Partnerships for Parks, we help people, organizations, and government work together to support NYC parks, gardens, trees, and other green spaces. Our free workshops are a great way to network and learn the skills needed to start, build, or sustain your park group.
