Menlo Park Civics 101 Wrapup and Resources

On September 24, community members gathered to teach and learn about “Turning Ranting into Advocacy.” Community leaders and journalist Kate Bradshaw told the story of how community members educated themselves, protested, and organized communication to City Council, and local journalism informed the public. As an outcome the city council alleviated potential drastic budget cuts to services at the Onetta Harris Community Center and childcare.

Here is the video of the event, and the presentations on the timeline of the events, city budget basics, and how to participate in city government decisions.

Thanks to moderator Michele Tate, and presenters Pam Jones, Rev. Teirrah McNair, Brigith Babb, Rachel Horst, and Adina Levin, and interpreter Noemi Gonzalez-Rocha.
