Youth Board Member Stipends or Scholarships

2019-02-26  •  Shari  •  PB²

PBP is beginning to focus on schools and wants to include more young people on its board and advisory board. This will allow the organization to be guided and shaped by some of the key folks that PBP is designed to empower. 

 

In order to set up a functional pipeline, I believe that we need support and resources for young people that are balancing this with other responsibilities. 

 

It would be great to work out what this could cover with the team. 

Idea

WE SHOULD JUST NEVER STOP FIGHTING FOR HUMAN, ANIMAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL RIGHTS!!!

2018-12-20  •  JOYCE SHIFFRIN  •  PB²

BECAUSE IF ALL HUMAN, ANIMAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL RIGHTS ARE PRESERVED INDEFINITELY, THEN THERE WOULD BE NO MORE WARS, HATE CRIMES, BULLYING AND ALL OTHER CRIMES/ABUSE FOR FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER!!!

Idea

Rebranding

2018-12-17  •  FrancescoT  •  PB²

more easily distinguish "PBP" from "PB". And so the work could seem less wonky and easier to say.

Idea

Training series!

2019-02-26  •  Taylor Spratt  •  PB²

A training portal or series  -online, in person and/or via Skype, to train folks across the country to be able to start and lead PB discussions in their communities. This could include a series of trainings and webinars, and printed collateral for the new trainers to give to interested PB folks.

Idea

Ensuring Equity Toolkit

2019-01-08  •  Shari  •  PB²

Review what equity is and make sure that thier PB process is mapped to equity indicators. There are really great indicators that come out of Seattle. 

 

Here is the city of oakland's equity indicator report: https://cao-94612.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/2018-Equity-Indicators-Full-Report.pdf

here is a powerpoint presentation from the city of Seattle: https://www.seattle.gov/Documents/Departments/SeattlePlanningCommission/MinutesAndAgendas/CompPlanEquityIDPsandIndicatorsOPCDPresentation02252016.pdf

 

There is a really great one pager that the City of Oakland uses that I think could be a tool adapted for our use with instructions and measurement guidelines 

 

Idea

Online PB Curriculum

2018-12-17  •  FrancescoT  •  PB²

learn about PB at their own pace. This would help spread the practice and allow more people to be interested in bringing PB to their city.

Idea

PB Conference Travel Fund

2019-02-28  •  jgodzeno  •  PB²

Just as PB excels at bringing outreach to the streets (let's go to the people instead of asking them to come to us!), PBP staff, board and network members should be more proactively presenting at convenings hosted by other influential organizations that reach our key audiences (vs./in addition to getting people to come to our events).

Strategic opportunities always come up throughout the year, but we and our advisors/partners often pass on them if it's not in the budget.   

Idea

Update facilitator tools and suppliments - Dinnertime democracy

2019-01-08  •  Shari  •  PB²

One of the biggests downfalls of scaling PB is having excellent facilitators in every space, but what if we could develop tools to empower ANYONE to be an excellent facilitaor? Meet the dinnertime democracy toolkit - a toolkit that connects to any phase of PB and makes it easy for folks to gather and talk democracy. The toolkit will feature simple prompting discussion questions, opportunities to work on refining ideas and instructions on how to submit or reecord an idea for submission. While no two PB processes are the same, the process for ideating and weighing choices around community needs are the same. I envision this tool focusing on those elements, but offering instructions and prompts to make conversation and open dialogue more approachable. 

Idea

Jackbox-ify PB

2018-12-17  •  Ashley Brennan  •  PB²

Jackbox provides an interactive platform for folks to connect virtually while in person -- sharing ideas, creativity, and laughs. Let's utilize engaging mixed media games (like Jackbox or other) to collect ideas for PB. If we partner with Jackbox or other similar providers, we could create a digital toolkit to share with PB processes everywhere -- they could access these new games and utilize in assemblies!

Idea

Walk the Equity Talk

2019-02-28  •  jgodzeno  •  PB²

PBP does a great job compared to many organizations in advancing equity in our work AND in how we run things internally day to day. But we can always do better! Funds could be used to hire external consultants for training, coaching and/or evaluation to support PBP in further diversifying our staff and board representation, and improving policies that advance recruiting, retaining, and advancing a diverse team.

A key output for our broader constituency could be a blog post or short case study on what we learned, resournces we used (e.g., publicly available guides or blogs we found helpful), how we've changed. This can can be useful for organizations and agencies that are tackling broader equity efforts while launching and growing PB.
