We need to change how Democracy is functioning now. What does participatory budgeting – participatory democracy – do? It creates a new mode of governance and it challenges the status quo.

JAMAL FOX, PB ADVISOR

If you are not at a seat at the table, you are on the menu. Too long, communities of color have been on the menu. And if they don't give you a seat at the table, well you get a fold up chair and you make one. That's democracy.

Young people are the leaders of today. We aren't just the leaders of tomorrow. By engaging in a participatory process with youth, cities are giving youth the opportunity... to become lifelong leaders in civic engagement.
