The People’s Budget

Formed in 2018, the People’s Budget Coalition is a multiracial, multilingual, and multigenerational alliance that stands in solidarity with the Black and Indigenous communities and is committed to actively deepening that solidarity for the liberation of all peoples.

The People’s Budget campaign for Fiscal Year 2023 was led by:

Black Lives Matter Long Beach, Black Agency, the Housing Justice Coalition, Long Beach Residents Empowered (LiBRE), the Language Justice Campaign, the Invest in Youth Coalition, Long Beach Immigrant Rights Coalition (LBIRC), Long Beach Forward, Long Beach Gray Panthers, LA Voice, Long Beach Clergy and Laity United for Economic Justice (CLUE), Democratic Socialists of America – Long Beach (DSA-LB), Sunrise Movement Long Beach, and Showing Up for Racial Justice – Long Beach (SURJ – LB).

Make Your Voice Heard

In August 2022, Black Lives Matter LBC and community allies came together to release the FY 2023 “People’s Budget Proposal” and bring equity and justice to the Long Beach City budget. The City’s budget is a moral document that reflects our city’s values and priorities. Adopting the People’s Budget is more than just a shift in the way the City has done business– it is a pathway to ending anti-Blackness and structural racism in the City, undoing historical disinvestment that has continued for generations, and moving us closer towards a Long Beach that is safe and healthy for all.
