Two local filmmakers have just released a new short documentary on the 49th Ward’s Participatory Budgeting election. DEMOCRACY IN ACTION is an updated version of a short documentary that was created by Rogers Park filmmakers Ines Sommer and David E. Simpson about the 49th Ward’s Participatory Budgeting process.
Ines and David have entered their documentary into Link TV’s “One Chicago, One Nation” online video contest. In the words of Link TV, the contest looks for videos that “tell the stories of people in Chicago from different backgrounds working together for the common good; we want these video stories to inspire others to work towards helping to build One Chicago, One Nation.”
I strongly encourage you to vote for the video and in so doing inspire other communities to adopt Participatory Budgeting
