They introduced the world’s first full implementation of participatory budgeting, a democratic way to allocate public funds. Under particip…

Participatory Budgeting is grassroots democracy at its best!

Check out this story on #PBNYC in the The New York Times!

"On Tuesday afternoon, a 15-year-old named Quincy Phillips had commandeered a corner on Hicks Street in Red Hook and was flagging down potential voters and campaigning for the free wireless initiative in the Red Hook Houses where he lived, even though his own family has Internet access. His proposal for a skateboard park ultimately hadn’t made it onto the ballot, but it hardly seemed to turn him off to democracy."

What a great weekend! We watched everyone come out to vote for their #PBNYC district projects!

At Mott Haven library, a daughter learned about #PBNYC from her mom, and she was bouncing up and down with excitement for voting, especially for the playground projects.

To quote one of our volunteers who shared this story, he said "It's kind of the best thing ever."
