Initiated in 2016 by New Kings Democrats, the Vision Project invites Brooklyn residents to think and talk together about what would make the Democratic Party better: more reflective of our values and more effective at creating the kind of society we want.
The Kings County Democratic Party has long been associated with machine politics, patronage, backroom deals, and a lack of transparency and accountability. Many Brooklyn neighborhoods and constituencies have been ignored by the party. The Vision Project hopes to bring more voices to the discussion of how the local party can better represent all of us.
A series of interactive community workshops and a boroughwide survey will produce a clear vision statement for the Brooklyn Democratic Party.
A vision statement is an aspirational description of future goals designed to guide current and future action.
Together, this statement and the survey results will articulate the aspirational future state of Brooklyn politics and the values that should guide Democratic political leaders in service to their constituents. We will also identify specific ways Brooklynites want their political leaders to engage with them.
Please sign up and we’ll keep you posted about this project and send you the Vision Statement when it’s finished.
