The Engagement Shift
This is a portion of the blog post by Elizabeth Good Christopherson, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Rita Allen Foundation.
"Our civic lives are changing. This change is being driven by new tools and approaches that fall under the umbrella of civic tech--as well as by people who recognize that new tools must serve the enduring aims of democracy. We are seeing a fruitful struggle to apply rapidly changing technology to address the needs and draw on the capacity of all people and put power in their hands."
