Tell the Mayor What YOU Want to See in the Budget, at a Budget Engagement Forum

The DC budget shapes many things that touch our daily lives, from schools and libraries to filling potholes and trash collection. The budget is also our key tool for addressing DC’s economic and racial inequities, and creating more opportunity for all residents to benefit from our city’s growth.

Every year the Mayor holds budget engagement forums to hear from residents about their priorities. This is an opportunity to gather with other residents and make your voice heard about what kind of community you want DC to be. By getting involved in the budget process, you can urge our leaders to create a bold budget for fiscal year (FY) 2020—one that invests in the building blocks for a thriving DC.

Anyone can attend a budget engagement forum—you don’t need to be an expert to advocate for a bold DC budget! You can check out these resources from DCFPI if you want to learn more before you go:
