What You Missed from the NCDD Confab Call with PBP
Our NCDD Confab Call this week featuring the Participatory Budgeting Project was one of our best so far! Over 75 people participated in the call and learned tons about the work that PBP is doing to grow participatory budgeting across the country – you missed out if you weren’t on the call!
NCDD member and PBP’s Communications Director David Beasley told us about exciting developments coming down the line for PBP, including working closely with the City of New York to use PB inside their housing authority agency, the PB Squared initiative (PB^2) that employs PB to decide how PBP uses its money, and the upcoming Participatory Budgeting Conference.
We also heard from Allison Rizzolo of Public Agenda about some of the great evaluation work being coordinated by the North American PB Research Board, the ongoing research into PB processes, and the PB research and evaluation toolkit that Public Agenda made available here.
If you missed out on the call, don’t worry, we recorded the presentation and discussion, which you can see and hear by clicking here. We also had a lively discussion in the text-based chat that informed the call, so we’ve also made the transcript of that conversation available as a PDF here.
Thanks again to David, Allison, and the PBP and Public Agenda teams for collaborating with us to make this Confab Call a great success!
