real democracy for NYC: a campaign for modern day citizen lawmaking

What law would you—or someone you know who's, say, signing a certain voter petition—propose if we could all vote on it? Record it, and we'll add it to this collection!

The collection plays after the great documentary this campaign grew out of; browse using the buttons in the player. These are just ideas off the top of people's heads. Some are proposals for other jurisdictions. Winning real democracy for NYC wouldn't necessarily make any one of them more likely to pass, but we will finally have a proper venue to ensure good ideas get a fair hearing.
