The Community Democracy Project promotes active citizenship, community learning, and direct democracy by putting the people in charge of the budget. Our voter initiative will change the Oakland City Charter so that we the people decide how our tax money is spent. There will be empowered neighborhood assemblies throughout the city where people can come together to discuss community issues and determine public priorities by directly voting on the city budget. The time has come for public decision-making to include the voices of all.

(This is a form of participatory budgeting that is now practiced in over 1,500 cities worldwide! participatorybudgeting.org)
*******
Come join us on Saturday, Aug. 3 from 2-6 PM to kick off our signature gathering event!

We will provide a brief training and food/drinks, hit the streets, then regroup and CELEBRATE!

We have 6 months to collect 30,000+ signatures to put our initiative on the ballot. Please RSVP to this email to get exact location.
