At a time when many are looking for bright spots when it comes to democracy, this session will introduce funders to new efforts in California to reimagine democracy at the local level. These new tools for community power and democracy are broadening political participation for traditionally disenfranchised groups, expanding civic engagement beyond elections, and creating new platforms for making government more responsive, accountable, and equitable.
Organizations like the Participatory Budgeting Project, Political Voice (a project of the Advancement Project), and Healthy Democracy are confronting chaos at the national scale head-on. They’re creating sessions to reframe how local communities can positively impact our democracy beyond elections; increasing community voice and accountability; increasing transparency and accessibility in the California initiative system; and advancing an equity agenda.
