A Functional Democracy
Local government is important. It affects us all. Whether we’re talking about the air we breathe, the water we drink, the energy we use, or the parks we play in, local government matters.
And yet, most of us don't know how to get involved. Voter turnout for local elections in 10 of America's 30 largest cities is consistently less than 15 percent.
That's where A Functional Democracy comes in. With our "Beginner's Guide To Local Government" coloring book, workshops, happy hours, and lecture series, we make it as easy as possible for you to get involved.
So think of this as your formal invitation. Even if you've never voted in a local election before, we're here for you. We'll walk you through the basics so you can get inspired, get connected, and make a difference... right in your own backyard.
