About the Survey

This survey is hosted by Cooperative 4 the Community, an Oakland-based group committed to community empowerment. We understand budgets as moral documents that should reflect the values and priorities of those impacted by the funding decisions. The format is based on the Community Democracy Project’s budget assembly workshop.


All responses are anonymous. We aggregate and present the “People’s Budget” which is the average across all participants. Only you can see your own “Side by Side” and “My Vote” results.
