A People’s Budget: Our Voice, Our Needs, Our Rights

This short video, produced by NESRI in collaboration with the Vermont Workers’ Center and their People’s Budget Campaign, explains how public budgets work now, and how they can and should work based on people’s voices, needs and rights.  The People’s Budget Campaign won a law requiring Vermont to develop a budget that addresses needs, advances equity and dignity, and involves people’s participation. While there’s still a long way to go to make this a reality, needs-based budgeting is crucial for realizing the right to healthcare and other economic and social rights.
