Real Money, Real Power, Real Change.
Now is the time to connect with your elected officials and sign up to help them bring participatory budgeting to your community. Below you’ll find a list with contact info of the aldermen who have committed to do PB indicating winners and those who will go to run off elections. Linked here, you'll find a great guide for individuals looking to bring PB to their communities, the Organizing for PB Toolkit. And if you want to hear more about PB Chicago updates or how you can participate, please sign up for our mailing list. We are very excited about what the next four years could bring to Chicago.
Your money, Your decision...
Could safety be improved in your community? Would you like to see better streets and parks? Participatory Budgeting lets YOU share your ideas on how you would spend $1 Million of public money to improve your community. There are several ways to participate in PB Chicago. If you live in a community doing PB, you can guide your local process on the Leadership Committee, serve as a Community Representative or volunteer your time or talents in other ways. You can also support PB Chicago by volunteering, spreading the word about PB or working to bring PB to your community.
