The People's Budget
your voice, your choice
Event Recap, Thank you, and The People's Budget Vote Phase is LIVE!
We kicked off the Vote in style at Washington Hall on October 10th! It was great to see everyone who came out for the $27 Million Dollar Vote. We hosted the event in deep collaboration with our Seattle People’s Fellows and Community Engagement Partners.
