People Powered is a global hub for participatory democracy - the direct participation of community members in making the policy decisions that affect their lives.

We build the power and impact of organizations and leaders around the world who are building a more participatory democracy, through programs such as participatory budgeting, participatory policy-making, participatory planning, and citizen assemblies. We’re like a global union for participatory democracy workers. We began to grow the organization in 2019, launching a Global Participatory Budgeting Hub as a fiscally sponsored initiative of the Participatory Budgeting Project, a nonprofit organization in the United States. In 2020, 58 participatory democracy leaders from 28 countries engaged in a planning process to build out the Global PB Hub into a new and broader organization. They decided on the mission, vision, values, and commitments below, along with our name and work priorities.
