Note: We will launch the Playbook to the general public, giving you full access to the content, on September 27. For now, this website only has preview information about the Playbook. Sign up to attend the launch event.

The Participation Playbook is an interactive guide to help you successfully advocate for and implement a participatory program for your government or community. It is a tool for people who want to open up government to meaningful and equitable community participation.
