PEOPLE FIRST is an MSPJC supported partnership with residents and activists working in the Binghampton community to raise voter turn out during elections and assist in long term resident-driven grassroots community organizing after the elections end.
For the two month groups of activists and Binghampton residents have been canvassing door to door ,talking with residents and neighbors about the issues that they care about.
This Saturday, October 8th, People First is hosting the first of a series of monthly community meeting for Binghampton residents.
At these meetings we will work with the community to organize and provide support and training for a new and fully resident owned and resident driven Neighborhood Organization. Collectively this association reflecting the full diversity of Binghampton will allow residents to collectively address their issues and concerns, run their own grassroots campaigns and ensure that area residents will have front end input in any redevelopment projects in their community. We do so hope you all will attend this first step in an ongoing grassroots effort in Binghampton.
Join our working group to organize residents across all of Binghampton around our most pressing issues. Stand together as one community to ensure that redevelopment efforts are community driven
