The Active Citizen in the Digital Age: Getting Political
Democracy depends on participation. The digital age provides an abundance of new ways for people to make a difference politically, charitably, and as consumers. In this event we’ll focus on two very different strategies to make our democratic political systems more accessible and accountable to what the people want. Color of Change is a U.S.-based online racial justice organization. It brings the power of more than a million members to bear in changing how governments and corporations act on behalf of black people. MiVote is a new effort, born in Australia but gone global, to shift power away from political parties and to people.
The Active Citizen in the Digital Age is an ongoing speaker series highlighting the range of ways people are using digital technologies to make a difference – politically, charitably, as volunteers, and with their career, consumer, and investing choices. Read more.
