I’ll admit, the past month has brought tears (of joy) to my eyes. I’m deeply proud that the Participatory Budgeting Project is celebrating our 10 year anniversary. We’ve come so far together – empowering 534,000 people in over 30 cities to decide how to spend $337 million!

Thank you for stepping up to join our powerful community of supporters, to make this work possible. Special thanks to everyone who celebrated with us in NYC at our 10th anniversary PBParty – see more below!

Now, we need your help to sustain this work. For our 10th anniversary, can you sign up as a PB Amplifier by contributing $10 – or more – per month? Monthly donations provide us with a crucial regular source of funding, enabling us to focus on building a more participatory and equitable democracy.

Will you join me in showing your support for our next 10 years by becoming a PB Amplifier?

PBParty: Celebrating 10 Years of PBP

A few weeks ago an all-star cast of speakers, sponsors, and PB supporters helped celebrate our 10th anniversary, in New York City. See all the beautiful photos here, thanks to photographers Yuko Kudo and Matt Harvey.

Thank you for stepping up to transform our democracy, and cheers to many anniversaries to come, with your support!
