Reimagining Brooklyn Politics in South Brooklyn - Marine Park

  • Legends Bar (event room) 2128 Flatbush Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11234 United States (map)

Are you a South Brooklyn resident that wants to find a more constructive way to talk about politics? Are you filled with ideas to share about how our local government should work? Are you tired of arguing politics on Facebook with bots, trolls, and red-state family members? 

Come to this Vision Project workshop in South Brooklyn! Click here to register! We’ll guide you through a positive conversation with your neighbors about your hopes for the future of Brooklyn. We want to collect ideas and values from every neighborhood across the borough, and our goal is to create a shared Vision Statement for Brooklyn's Democratic Party after we do. We plan to share these ideas with elected officials and advocate for a unified Democratic party in Brooklyn. 

At this workshop, you’ll learn more about local politics, make new friends, and contribute your ideas to help us find out more about what Brooklyn expects from its political leaders. Co-Hosted by South Brooklyn Progressive Network and The Vision Project, this event will be wheelchair accessible. There is a full lunch menu available from Oasis Diner. All are welcome– we'll organize babysitting nearby for parents with young children. Please send us a message if that would be useful for you.

The Vision Project is a coalition of political clubs and community organizations hosting participatory workshops across Brooklyn. Each workshop will offer community members the chance to articulate their political values and future hopes for the Brooklyn Democratic Party, and learn those of their neighbors. After the workshops conclude, project organizers will convene a Vision Summit to explore and analyze the ideas gathered, and then publish a draft Vision Statement. The statement will be followed by a borough-wide survey to clarify the details and confirm broad support for this vision.

Please click here to register, and we look forward to seeing you at Legends!
