REAL MONEY, REAL POWER
You’re invited to a free event on Thursday, August 8 to learn about participatory budgeting (PB), a new approach to democracy in which community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget. PB gives ordinary people real decision-making power over real money. Come hear from people who are using PB in their own cities to fund the projects needed most in their communities.
