Ty Wilkins

Advocacy + Outreach Project Manager

Ty is a recent Graduate of Portland State University, earning his undergrad in political science with a focus in both public service and civic leadership. When talking about participatory budgeting, Ty is most inspired by its transformative qualities and its power to get people engaged and reinvested in democratic processes. His biggest accomplishment thus far has been spending 3 months in Cape Town, South Africa doing research for a small NGO and advocating for residents affected by gentrification and houselessness. Outside of his involvement in PB Oregon, you can find Ty with his 3 year old son, biking around town or sharing libations with friends at neighborhood watering holes.
