Beyond Elections: Creating Grassroots Democracy in our Communities
Flying Squirrel Community Space
285 Clarissa St
- Thomas Janowski
About This Event:
One of the Green Party's Ten Key Values is grassroots democracy because we believe that being a political party is about more than just running candidates for office. Please join us at our January meeting in exploring how communities throughout the world are expanding the definition of democracy beyond election season and the ballot box.
We will spend some time viewing the documentary film, Beyond Elections, which provides a look into Brazil's participatory budgeting processes, Venezuela's communal councils, and other similar initiatives. We will also look at projects within the United States such as the neighborhood councils of Los Angeles.
The Flying Squirrel Community Space is a wheelchair accessible facility. ASL & other language interpretation may be provided upon request with at least 48 hours notice.
