It’s our season finale, and we’re closing out the year with a look at one of the most quietly radical movements gaining momentum in Bushwick, and across the city: a program that allows members of the community to directly determine how their tax dollars are spent.

This week, we’re diving into the world of Participatory Budgeting with the office of City Council member Antonio Reynoso.


We’d like to extend our sincere thanks to Jennifer and Council member Reynoso for helping to open up Participatory Budgeting process to even more people in the community.

To learn more about Participatory Budgeting across the city, head to the City Council’s PB page ( If you’re interested in getting involved with PB in Bushwick, you can visit the PB pages for the neighborhood’s City Councilmembers: Antonio Reynoso ( and Rafael Espinal (

We’d of course, also like to thank you so much for joining us this week, and throughout this season. None of this would be possible without your support. We’ll be taking a brief break before returning this Fall, with more of Bushwick’s incredible stories. But in the meantime, we’d love to know what you’re interested in hearing, and how we can do better. Get in touch by emailing us at [email protected], or by DM’ing us on our instagram ( We can’t wait to hear from you, and we’ll see you soon.
