Community Democracy in Action is a fiscally sponsored project of the Sustainable Economies Law Center and is co-managed by volunteer members of the Community Democracy Project (CDP). CDA is gathering signatures to put a People's Budget Amendment on Oakland's general election ballot.
Your tax deductible donation will help us hire organizers to gather signatures for our voter initiative! Our petition will change the Oakland City Charter so that we the people decide how our tax money is spent. There will be empowered neighborhood assemblies throughout the city where people can come together to discuss community issues and determine public priorities by directly voting on the city budget. The time has come for public decision-making to include the voices of all.
