White House Champion of Change and CityCampMN Reception
(This invite is for those attending the reception only. Alternatively you may RSVP for the all day CityCampMN on Nov. 9 which also includes the reception.)
The White House award recently recognized 15 local leaders across the nation working to build participation in our democratic processes while using new technologies and engaging less represented communities via open government and civic software development.
Steven Clift, a founder and Executive Director of E-Democracy, has spent two decades focused on open government and inclusive civic engagement in the Twin Cities and across the globe. E-Democracy’s mission is to harness the power of online tools to support participation in public life, strengthen communities, and build democracy.
Please join us for a special reception honoring Steve and the work of E-Democracy:
- When: Saturday, November 9th, 4:00-6:00 PM
- Where: University of St. Thomas - Schulze Hall Atrium, Minneapolis Campus
- Cost: Free (Donations or pledges welcome)
- RSVP: Above
The reception will include a short presentation of the award and recognition of E-Democracy’s BeNeighbors.org outreach and engagement team and exciting civic technology trends, led by Open Twin Cities.
Come join us to celebrate and connect with emerging innovators and civic leaders. If you want to connect even deeper, RSVP for the full CityCampMN event earlier in the day.
For more background on the award see this local media report, Steve's blog post on the WhiteHouse.gov, short video clips from the official White House event, and this related project update on the Knight Foundation blog.
E-Democracy thanks Open Twin Cities and the University of Saint Thomas for their assistance with this event.
This is not a White House organized event, although up until the government shutdown they were considering an invitation for a representative to participate in CityCampMN and this event.
