Democracy starts at a local level.
We are living in increasingly complex times. While we have become more connected to our world, we are moving further and further apart from one another. Increasingly, citizens are losing site of the role they play in their communities— becoming complacent and virtual citizens while our real world ties and bonds are crumbling. If we look closely at our local governments we can see that they make decisions and create local policy that affect directly their residents having immediate consequences in their daily lives.
