Art A Catalyst For Change: 2018 Culmination Events!

June is Gun Violence Awareness Month and I am thrilled to share that we had over one thousand students participate in our Art A Catalyst for Change culmination events this month across all 5 boroughs. Art A Catalyst for Change is a New York City Council initiative, which I was proud to spearhead, that provides after-school programming at select middle and high schools located where high incidences of gun violence occur.

It is so important that we remind young people early and often that they have the power to affect change in their communities! Young people are already leading the way in communities across the country and we must continue to give them resources and support, like art activism programs, to further cultivate their leadership!!!

Thank you to my Council colleagues for their leadership and support of this initiative: Speaker Corey Johnson and Council Members Debi Rose, Alicka Samuel, Robert E. Cornegy Jr., Mark Treyger, Inez Barron, Jumaane D. Williams, Bill Perkins, Diana Ayala, Fernando Cabrera, Vanessa L. Gibson, Andy King, Donovan Richards, Jimmy Van Bramer,  and Adrienne Adams.

Another major thank you to our partners: 2020 Vision for Schools, Inc./Thrive Collective, Museum of the Moving Image, Black Spectrum Theatre Company, Sundog Theatre, Inc. BRIC Arts, and The Bronx Museum of Arts.

Our young people are so incredibly TALENTED and we have a RESPONSIBILITY to nourish those GIFTS and show them how they can use them to give back to their communities!!! Photo highlights of the culmination events below!

District 35 Participatory Budgeting 2018: Winning Projects

Majority Leader Cumbo visited Medgar Evers Prep yesterday to announce results and present oversized checks for winning projects (Via @NYC Council Twitter)

CROWN HEIGHTS – City Council Majority Leader Laurie Cumbo paid a visit to a Crown Heights high school to announce the winning projects from Participatory Budgeting Cycle 7 in her 35th District, unveiling the results and presenting oversized checks at Medgar Evers Prep on Tuesday, May 22.

In a statement championing an “unprecedented” 63% increase in votes cast over last year’s cycle of budgeting, Councilmember Cumbo wrote that participatory budgeting is “an incredible opportunity to engage and empower people of all backgrounds to collectively decide how we can spend $1 million to fund capital projects that will strengthen our community.”

The winning projects were:

Bklyner reporting is supported by our subscribers and:
Madison_11.01_11.15

Technology Upgrade at Medgar Evers College Preparatory School – $250,000
Funding for 8 classroom sets and 35 smart boards which would “provide students with the necessary technology tools for a better education”

Building Safety for P.S. 20/Academy of Arts & Letters – $250,000
School construction upgrades including water filtration, AC/heating, doors, gym safety padding, and plumbing “to create a safer environment”

Electric Upgrade for Clinton Hill Library – $150,000
Electrical upgrades that would “improve space efficiency for the use of technology” at the Clinton Hill Library

Technology Upgrade for Ebbets Field Middle School – $175,000
Funding for 160 new laptops to “replace outdated ones, and serve growing population of students”

Refurbish P.S. 9’s Auditorium – $250,000
Installing new lighting, sound system, paint job, curtains, chairs and stage floor in the auditorium.

Five of the seven proposed projects received funding from voters, who were less enthused by upgrading the auditoriums at either M.S. 113 or P.S. 705. Maybe next cycle…

The projects were selected based on the votes of 4,478 constituents in District 35. Of course, at the last census, roughly 86,000 people were eligible to vote on participatory budgeting in District 35, which means even though turnout was up, something around 5% of the eligible voters actually bothered.

With $1,000,000 of funding on the line for each district, each vote in District 35 was essentially worth $223. Not bad for spending a little of your day all the polls!
