About
the people's budget chicago

This project was developed from May 2020 through fall 2021. We worked with over twenty-five organizations to pull this People's Budget together, with facilitators from six different organizations, resident participants in 13 neighborhoods, and facilitation design developed by a team of organizers, civic educators, and policy researchers. 

These efforts were coordinated by Paola Aguirre, Iván Arenas, Vanessa Dominguez, Tiffany Ford, Vanessa Lee, Karina Martinez, Sarah Oberholtzer, and Andrea Ortiz. We are grateful to City Bureau Documenters and On the Real Film for capturing the budget priorities and stories of Chicagoans who built this budget.
