This chapter illustrates the PB group's desire to communicate with local community organizations in New York City, Boston, San Francisco, and elsewhere to organize public forums. At each event, core community groups brought in allies and local elected officials to hear about Chicago. Diverging from their approach in Chicago, the group launched Participatory Budgeting in New York City (PBNYC) as a multidistrict process. Community Voices Heard—a group that organizes low-income women of color around public housing and welfare programs—played a lead role in securing broad community support and foundation funding. The ongoing public presentations thus led to new PB processes. Foundations began to take notice, investing more money in the group's work and in local PB procedures.
