How Local Government is Reinventing Civic Engagement


Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement (PACE) released a major report detailing the innovative methods local governments around the country are using to increase civic engagement by the public:

“Local governments are at the cutting edge of finding new tools and methods to increase civic engagement in this country. We hope this report will stimulate new thinking within the philanthropic community, as well as in local governments around the country, and help spread the word about these new and successful approaches,” said Chris Gates, Executive Director of PACE. Combining original research with an overview of the literature and history of civic engagement and local government reform, the report highlights fresh insights from foundation leaders, civic experts, scholars, local officials and public engagement advocates."
