Valerie Warren has a lengthy history of working to make her community better. These days she is working to help implement participatory budgeting practices in Greensboro and across the South. Participatory budgeting is an innovative way of better engaging the public in local government. It literally takes democracy to a new level. We talk about how important democracy is and why public budgets matter so much.
