Screen Shot 2015-07-08 at 10.43.16 AMJoin CDP tomorrow, July 9 from 5-9pm for a mixer at Farley’s East! CDP has been named Nonprofit of the Month for July and will be celebrating with a mixer at Farley’s that will include games, prizes, a photobooth, and more! 20% of proceeds from the event will be donated to CDP, so come hungry! Here are a few reasons to stop by:

  • Learn more about the group of Oakland residents that is making historical strides towards a city budget that serves the real needs and values of the people!
  • Check out our window display for July’s Nonprofit of the Month
  • Celebrate our success so far
  • Find out how to get involved

Hope to see you there!

On Monday, July 6, CDP, together with the Participatory Budgeting Project led a teach-in hosted by the Sustainable Economies Law Center. PBP shared examples from around the country and around the world and CDP shared more about our campaign and led a discussion on how PB can deepen democracy. Thanks to all who came!

CDP is part of a burgeoning #peoplesbudget coalition! Do you know an organization that should be part of the movement to bring a People’s Budget to Oakland? An organization working to build people power, deepen democracy, increase civic engagement, or build an inclusive Oakland that reflects the needs of all? We’d love for you to connect us with them! Several Oakland organizations are already involved, and the table is open to other organizations working to build people power in Oakland.

Email us at if you have an organization you’d like to connect us with.
