Community Conversations are designed to bring together New Yorkers in their neighborhoods with the organizations and community leaders that they know and trust, to discuss issues that are important to them and their families.
These events are a chance for us to bring quantitative data back to communities, understanding how individuals’ personal stories and ideas relate to the findings. Together with the survey data, input from Community Conversations will help determine the priorities, policies, and programs of the new mayor and his team. Community Conversations are also an opportunity for civic education, learning together about how government works.
There are two ways to engage with Community Conversations:
Join a Conversation
Have thoughts or questions about the NYC Speaks survey results? Want to discuss critical local issues with neighbors and community leaders? Register for a scheduled Community Conversations event!
Host a Conversation
NYC Speaks invites you to bring together a small group of neighbors, friends, or family and discuss what we heard from New Yorkers and co-create solutions. Our Community Conversations toolkit contains everything you need to host your own.
