Peoples Budget Texas
Participatory Budgeting (PB) is a democratic process in which community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget. PB gives ordinary people real decision-making power over real money. The process was first developed in Brazil in 1989, and there are now over 11,000 participatory budgets around the world, most at the municipal level.
Texas began doing participatory budgeting (PB) in 2013 and is the largest participatory democratic exercise in the American South. We are developing a Metaverse PB to service every school, town, district, county and even church and company in Texas. Peoples Budget Texas (PBTX) is a student-led 100% volunteer 501c3 nonprofit organization.
