Greetings, E-Democracy.Org supporters! While it's been several months since
we last sent you a newsletter, we've still been busy working toward our goal
of improving civic engagement online and providing resources for neighbors
and communities to connect in meaningful ways online.
As you'll see in this issue, our Participation 3.0 efforts are leaping
forward, due to the dedication of so many people across the globe. We're
also gearing up for another Give to the Max Day fundraising effort.
Over the past couple years, we've been struggling a bit to find a format
that will make this newsletter useful to you - providing you key information
about our efforts, and giving you opportunities to get involved. This is why
you haven't heard from us in awhile. But what we realized recently is that
this communication needs to be focused more clearly on what we expect from
each of you, so we'll be working to include content that will be more
relevant to you.
That's where we need your help. If you would like to see a story or hear an
update about a particular project, contact me <email obscured>>. Or if
you're interested in helping with a particular effort, visit our Participation
3.0 page <http://pages.e-democracy.org/Participation_3.0> or contact
team <email obscured>>.
We'll be sending this newsletter out quarterly, with information that
augments the more frequent communications available on our Project
Blog<http://blog.e-democracy.org/>and other project forums. We're
anxious to hear what you think. And we hope
a more focused product will help you stay more engaged in and informed about
From the Executive Director
We're at an important time in the history of civic engagement. Now more than
ever, we need to harness the power of the Internet to connect people and
break down the barriers to participating in democracy.
