City Council Profiles

In anticipation of the local elections and the subsequent turnover of the New York City Council seats, the Human Rights Project  released human rights profiles of New York City 2013 council prospects. The profiles, consisting of Council members and candidates responses to an eight-question human rights questionnaire, provided New York City voters with a unique snapshot of their positions on human rights. They also examined their prospective legislative and budgeting priorities, including the use of participatory budgeting to allocate discretionary funding. Click to view the profiles.
