Event description

Description

Join us for an exploratory conversation - Is East Portland ready for participatory budgeting?

With participatory budgeting (PB), ordinary people have real power over real money to make decisions that affect their lives. PB, is a deliberative democratic process wherein ordinary people decide how to allocate a portion of a municipal or public budget to support projects that have been voted upon by the community.

Join Centennial Community Association members, neighbors and friends to discuss the idea of using Participatory Budgeting processes in East Portland to express community priorities As part of the evening we will watch the Point of View documentary, "Public Money" about the active participatory budgeting process in New York City. Materials and discussion will occur in Spanish and in English. Representatives from Participatory Budgeting Oregon will attend the event. We will hear from members of the community, from East Portland Action Plan staff and from the Centennial Community Association. A light dinner will be served. Please RSVP to save you spot at this event.
