How do we invest in our communities?

NSC Webinar w Photos v1

New Social Contract webinar series

Public budgets are key to meeting our shared needs. Congress is in the middle of a critical budget reconciliation, and state and local governments are deciding how to spend COVID relief money. But the way public budgeting works right now is undemocratic and fails to meet our communities’ needs. What would public budgets and budgeting processes look like if they were designed to advance racial and economic equity and meet the needs of all communities? 

Join us to hear stories and insights from four folks on the frontlines of this work:

  • Shari Davis, Participatory Budgeting Project
  • Ruth Idakula, Dignity in Schools Campaign and Partners for Dignity & Rights
  • Peter Sabonis, Partners for Dignity & Rights
  • Lebaron Sims, Demos
  • Moderator: Ben Palmquist, Partners for Dignity & Rights
