Description:
The New York City Charter, established by the State Legislature in 1897, is the City's constitution, creating the framework for our government. The Charter controls how the City spends our tax dollars, how decisions are made about changes to our neighborhoods, and the powers of our elected officials. This fall, New Yorkers will have a chance to amend our Charter by voting on ballot proposals covering a wide variety of issues, from elections to police accountability. The speakers will discuss proposals headed to the ballot on November 5, 2019.
