Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a democratic process in which community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget. It gives ordinary people real power over real money, letting them work with government to make the budget decisions that affect their lives.
This short introductory video was made in collaboration the Participatory Budgeting Project and meerkat illustrator and animator Raj Kottamasu. It’s used in community assemblies around the United States to serve as an introduction to this unique process.
