 As of the launch of the new site, it is up to each group to maintain and update their own events. This event was created by Cheyanna Weber for the Alternative Economics group. Any admin of that group should be able to edit this event. Please contact them.

To Jillian, Jake, and The Internet Work Group:

A mistake was made on the Meet-Up Directions for our Sunday (Oct 23rd)
Teach-in on Participatory Budgeting.

Can you make the following correction to the event as it is written at
the following link?

http://www.nycga.net/events/event/participatory-budgeting-in-nyc/

THE CORRECTION IS...
The Meet-up Directions should say that we are meeting at the Red Cube
Across the Street (SEE directly below)

-------------------------------------------
MEET-UP DIRECTIONS:
We will meet near the Big RED CUBE at ACROSS THE STREET from Liberty Square.
Look for someone holding a sign that says "PARTICIPATORY BUDGETING TEACH-IN"
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will try to have someone with a big sign at the other location
directing people over to the Red Cube BUT if you are able to make this
correction that would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Vinny
