Change by Us NYC is a terrific new social media website: http://nyc.changeby.us. It’s designed for New Yorkers to connect online, discover resources, and create projects to make their neighborhoods greener and greater.

Many City agencies and community-based organizations will be using Change by Us NYC to help residents turn their ideas into action. And we think it will be a great tool for like-minded people to connect about what matters to them most.

We look forward to having you come to the launch event, and we hope you’ll take the opportunity to spread the word. Tell your friends and neighbors about Change by Us NYC and the innovative steps our City is taking to help people collaborate and create change.
