Put The Power Back In Your Hands

Participatory budgeting puts the power to decide how your tax dollars are spent back in your hands. From idea, to vote, to implementation you decide what your neighborhood needs. Your donations for outreach materials will make the difference between success and failure of the first ever Participatory Budgeting process in St. Louis. Outreach materials will insure our grass roots, door to door campaign reaches and activates everyday residents as well as under-represented and under-resourced communities. A successful launch in the 6th ward will make St. Louis history and set a precedent for Participatory Budgeting to go city-wide and get everyone involved in this great new process. It's not politics; it's democracy.

For more information on Participatory Budgeting or to find out how to get involved, visit our website at or call 6th Ward Alderwoman Christine Ingrassia at 314-622-3287 or email

They are actually testing a model focusing on Youth in Boston! This "model" of citizen participation is working globally.

Happy to support the efforts of all involved and work towards a more open and understandable local government that prioritizes spending based on community needs and wishes. Thank you PB-STL!

This is going to change politics in St. Louis. I applaud Alderwoman Ingrassia on her forward thinking. I know it's going to be successful in the 6th Ward. It has to be, so it can be expanded. We all need more say in how our money is spent!
