Collectively building a world where everyone's voice counts.
of our major wins for participatory budgeting in Oregon
Parks and Nature Bond
Successfully incorporated funds for participatory budgeting in this 2019 regional funding measure and are actively working with Metro on implementation.
Get Moving Measure
Metro's 2020 transportation funding package includes PB to identify and implement community driven anti-displacement strategies. While voters did not pass the regional measure, the PB component could be funded once alternative revenue is identified.
Youth Voice, Youth Vote
Collaborated with Unite Oregon, Rosewood Initiative, East County Rising Community Partnerships, & Play Grow Learn to develop the Youth Voice, Youth Vote (YV2) PB and secured a portion of State ARPA funds ($690K) to launch the project in 2022.
To date we have successfully help secure $5-6 million in public funds to be allocated through PB in Oregon. In the process, supported hundreds of Oregonians in understanding the potential of PB to transform and deepen our democracy, especially for those without a voice or vote in government decision-making.
