Participate in PB

Does your community do PB? If so, you may be able to take part by sharing your ideas, developing proposals, and voting!

But even if your local administrators aren't doing PB, you can still be involved in the movement for direct democracy and local control of public funds.

Here's more ways to participate:

Engaging thousands of people in budgeting is not easy, so we strive to provide materials and resources for local PB organizers and participants. If you're organizing to win PB in your community, feel free to draw on these materials to make your case. If you already have PB, you can use them to spread the word and improve your process. If you know of other materials that you think we should share, let us know.
