HOW WE'RE CHANGING THE BUDGET PROCESS
Participatory budgeting (PB) is a democratic process in which community members decide how to spend part of a public budget. It gives people real power over real money.
When we show up at Board of Supervisors meetings to offer criticism of current policies and spending, and to uplift community recommendations for how we’d like to see our money allocated, this is one powerful way we are participating in PB in LA County.

Our coalition is currently working with SD2 (Holly Mitchell’s Office) in development of a participatory budgeting pilot for residents of that supervisorial district.
