A local approach to democracy-building

“Through our work in specific communities, and through path-breaking multi-city partnerships such as Reimagining the Civic Commons, we have seen firsthand the transformative power of public places and spaces, from community parks to libraries to streets. These spaces support more engaged residents, a sense of connection to where people live and better information sharing.”

Knight Foundation‘s Sam Gill describes the civic commons as one strategy for building stronger democracies.
