Youth Lead the Way for PB Boston

Leave a comment

Congrats to the youth of Boston who took the lead on running the city’s first-ever Participatory Budgeting program this month! 

 

Ashley-Rose Salomon, youth organizer for Participatory Budgeting Boston, said of the kids, “They determine how it’s done. They get to say something and see it get done. It’s effective, efficient and it’s empowering. It actually brings the power back to the people,” Salomon said. “I feel all too often, especially in marginalized communities, their voices are unheard, so they choose not to vote.”
