About Talking Transition:

Talking Transition is pioneering the first open transition in New York City. We're transforming the typically closed-door transition process between Election Day and the Inauguration into an opportunity for New Yorkers to make their voices heard. Whether you’re a lifelong New Yorker or you’ve just arrived, everyone has a unique vision for this great city. Now is your chance to tell our new mayor what’s important to you and your neighborhood.

Join us to share your questions, stories, and ideas for the city's future. By making your voice heard, you can help inform the mayor-elect's agenda for the next four years and make sure that City Hall prioritizes the issues most important to you.
