About Us

Advancement Project California developed WeBudget because we believe that an easily accessible budget creates a more productive conversation with LAUSD staff that will lead to better student outcomes.

Advancement Project California developed WeBudget because we believe that with an easily accessible budget, academic, school climate, and community health information, that parents, caregivers, students, and advocates can have more informed and productive conversations with LAUSD staff that will lead to better student outcomes.

Join us and learn more about the LAUSD budgeting process. And let’s discuss what resources are needed for our highest-need schools. Because we know it’s our kids, students of color, who are under-resourced. It’s our time to push equity forward.

We would like to acknowledge the W.M. Keck Foundation and First 5 LA for their generous support, which allowed us to develop this first-of-a-kind website. We would also like to thank the Community Coalition, InnerCity Struggle, Partnership for LA Schools, MALDEF, and ACLU SoCal for their guidance and support in the development of this process. Finally, we would like to thank the community leaders who spend their days tirelessly advocating on behalf of students for their input to make this website accessible to all Angelenos.

We appreciate the collaboration with Provoc, among whom we worked with to produce the site. Their insights on user design and development seamlessly complemented our team’s skillsets and areas of expertise to create a first-of-a-kind equity tool.
