The origins of our City’s democracy aren’t all roses—they include colonialism, white supremacy, economic exploitation. But they also include native sovereignty and the striving for self-determination by all communities. A city works best when it listens to the people most impacted by its programs and decisions.
Join us for a conversation with Alex Chiu and Jen Wick about the process for making a democratic, back-pocket tool to increase civic engagement. They collaborated with the Office of Community & Civic Life to make a zine about the different ways to organize and advocate for a city that works for YOU. We'll dig into the project, the approach, and the thinking that led to this citizen's manual for engagement with local government.
