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

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

Video introduction to Participatory Budgeting with foreign language subtitles

2019-05-06  •  Jim Labbe  •  PB²

So people could overcome language barriers to learning about participatory bugeting. The existing verion of the PBP's video introduction to participatory budgeting with spanish subtitles is super useful:

https://vimeo.com/pbproject/elpp

I low cost PB squared project might be to simply do the same for other languages. Most useful for me in my community would be Russian, Mandran Chinese, and Veitnamese. 

Perhaps a higher cost project could be to create a new introductory videos designed for different ethnic/langauge groups.

 

 

 

 

 

Idea

Toolkit: PB for Organization Budgets

2019-02-26  •  unanimador  •  PB²

Develop a toolkit that organizations can use to implement PB for their own budgets. Helping organizations run their own PB processes will empower their staff and community, and build capacity and awareness for PB. This project will enable other organizations to adapt the PB2 model that PBP has already developed.

Idea

Fix two major problems with one fix

2018-12-20  •  Timothy Campbell  •  PB²

Convince congress that all student college debt should be discharged allowing that money to flow into the economy, increasing demand and employment in housing, manufacturing, agriculture and retail.  Without the burden of $500 to $5,000 monthly payments, these young Americans will spend those funds on housing, furniture, clothing, transportation, groceries and entertainment, stimulating the economy like nothing else.
