Participatory Budget Pledge

A core component of the People’s Budget is the emphasis on including the people in the budgeting process. We want to encourage all political candidates and officeholders to sign the participatory budgeting pledge to commit to holding a participatory budgeting process.

The People’s Budget LA Coalition does not endorse candidates but we will reflect the names of those who have signed this pledge on this page for public information.
