The Community Budget Alliance is a coalition of local organizations and community members who believe the City budget should be a people’s budget.

We are standing up for equitable public investment that will increase community wealth, health and justice for all, especially for communities of color. We believe that the city can and must simultaneously provide vital services and programs, invest in high quality infrastructure and use public dollars to support good jobs. By building power locally, we can strengthen our cities and determine our futures. #WeMakeThisCity


Reimagining Public Safety​

Public safety is secure housing, good jobs, healthcare, not racist policing. The City must divest from harmful and racist systems and invest in community programs, services, and infrastructure.

Tenant's Rights

Housing is a human right, not a commodity to be bought and sold for profit. Every individual and family in San Diego should have access to stable housing that is healthy, safe, and affordable.

People's Economy

The economy is made by people not corporations. San Diego should be a place where everyone has enough to live and enjoy life.

Democratizing Power

Democratic governments should be transparent and community led.

Environmental Justice

San Diego should be a city where everyone can enjoy an environment free of toxic waste, with clean air, and access to energy-efficient and diverse mobility options.​
