Fall Newsletter: Participatory Budgeting

Participatory budgeting (PB) is a mouthful to say. But when you hear about the current PB project in Cambridge, MA, you will appreciate why it captured A2Ethics' attention as well as that of The League of Women Voters and CivCity.

PB gives residents a chance to propose city improvement ideas and directly decide how to spend part of a public budget. It is an experiment in inclusive, open governance. Please join us on September 29th in welcoming our Cambridge guests. 

 
Bring your own city improvement idea with you! And bring your friends too.
