Join PBP's Board of Directors

PBP is at an exciting moment of transition, growth, and change. We are:

  • Building on past successes to create and implement a new strategic vision
  • Growing our staff capacity and cultivating a culture of care
  • Transitioning to a co-leadership model
    Implementing an organization-wide, sociocratic decision-making structure


We are recruiting new members for our Board of Directors as well as a Board Chair!

Serving on PBP’s Board of Directors is a distinct and important role in the governance of a national nonprofit organization committed to building community power by expanding participatory democracy. Board members serve as strategic partners and maintain a fiduciary responsibility to ensure compliance, review and approve our annual budget, advise our team through board committee or working groups, and contribute to the financial health of PBP by participating in our fundraising strategy.

PBP’s Board is a group of individuals serving in a volunteer capacity. The Board meets six times a year to grapple with the strategic challenges facing the organization. Board meetings are conducted virtually (via Zoom/Phone), and we strive to hold one in-person meeting when safety allows.

PBP is based in New York City and Oakland, CA, though this role is open to all qualified applicants based anywhere in the United States. Interested applicants can apply for our Board of Directors and indicate their interest in being considered for Chair of the Board in their interest form.
