PB Discussion in Chicago

If you’re in the Chicago area, check out the following event:
Roving Cafe Society with WBEZ: Participatory Budgeting
Thursday, June 23 – 6:00 PM – WBEZ North Side Bureau (2913 West Devon Ave, Chicago)
For the first time in the U.S., the city’s 49th Ward lets taxpayers directly decide how public money is spent. Residents of the ward were able to decide last year, through participatory budgeting, how to spend $1.3 million in taxpayer dollars. What are the benefits of participatory budgeting and what are its downfalls? Alderman Joe Moore of the 49th Ward and Liz Vitell from the Rogers Park Community Council will be our guest speakers. Come learn more about this process and more at our Roving Café Society discussion!
