Detroit Disability Power organizes Detroiters annually to actively participate in our city budget process. Every year we urge City Council and the Mayor to budget in ways that support disability justice and accessibility. This year, we're getting a head start. Whether you're brand new to organizing and the city budget process, or an experienced budget veteran, this Town Hall will help you prep and plan for action in 2024. After this Town Hall, you'll have a clear understanding of:
Overall budget process and timeline
Past efforts by DDP to influence the budget, wins and challenges that inform our next steps
Updates on how last year's budget funds are being used
Budget priorities for Fiscal Year 2025 in our disability community
This is a virtual, free, open-to-the-public event! Join us via Zoom! You'll receive all the details after you RSVP. ASL and captioning provided. Contact our community Organizer, NaJee, with any questions at Najaree@DetroitDisabilityPower.org.
