Next Assembly:

* Thursday, April 8 - 3-5pm


Thanks to all of our collective work in summer 2020, the ACC Mayor & Commission is interested in participatory budgeting! To be successful, participatory budgeting needs to come from the power of the people speaking our truths - not a passive acceptance of whatever process the government puts together. Join us at the assemblies to have your voice heard and let your ideas drive the next phase of this community effort.

PARTICIPATORY BUDGETING
Participatory budgeting (PB) is a democratic process where community members decide how to spend public money—built on the belief that the people closest to the problem are the closest to the solution.

PEOPLE'S ASSEMBLIES
People's assemblies (PA) gather people to organize and address essential social issues and questions important to their community. The assembly is a representation spirit of the people who have come together and blend their knowledge, experience, and passion.. PAs are a vehicle through which the marginalized and working-class can build dual power proportionate to the government. They offer safe spaces for the community to practice governance and coordinate strategies outside of state influence.

We want to center the voices of BIPOC individuals and are aiming to be intentional with our recruitment so there are incentives (gas money, gift cards,etc) available for anyone who wants to participate but does not have the privilege of free time and access resources. We want to honor that and make sure participation is accessible to the REAL experts in our community. All of you./Queremos centrar las voces de los individuos de BIPOC y estamos tratando de ser intencionales con nuestro reclutamiento, por lo que hay incentivos (dinero de gas, tarjetas de regalo, etc) disponibles para cualquiera que quiera participar pero no tiene el privilegio de tiempo libre y acceso a los recursos.
