For the past decade, the Participatory Budgeting Project (PBP) has been building a movement to transform our democracy. We have expanded and deepened democratic participation in government, especially by communities with the greatest needs. To celebrate, we’re hosting a 10th Anniversary Benefit at Prime Produce in New York City.
On Thursday, May 23, 2019, we will reflect on our experiences and share what we hope to accomplish moving forward. For the past ten years, PBP has been the lead organization growing participatory budgeting across North America. We've launched and supported PB processes in over 30 cities, empowering 400,000 people to decide how to spend $300 million, funding more than 1,630 community-generated projects. And now, we're excited to toast to the past 10 years, and many more ahead -- with you!
