Be a part of the first-ever People’s Budget for New Orleans! Tell us– and city leaders– how you would spend tax dollars. We’re asking New Orleanians from every corner of the city to come out and participate in an interactive budget night.
Each participant will receive a hand full of pennies, each representing a portion of the city’s budget. Each penny can be put in a jar representing a city department based on YOUR priorities. Of course, some things– like the consent decrees and the NOFD Pension Fund– have to be funded first! See how quickly you run out of pennies for your favorite programming? Help us come up with new ideas for revenue as well!
At the end of the night, the pennies will be counted and we’ll write a report letting everyone know what the people of New Orleans see as their highest funding priorities. Come out and let your voice be heard! Food and drinks will be provided.
