BeNeighbors.org is an E-Democracy project to create online places where neighbors meet across St. Paul and Minneapolis. Some 20,000+ area residents participate across the 35+ Neighbors Forums hosted by E-Democracy alone. In some areas, that's +30% household participation!
Online connections across local communities lead to in-person community engagement "in real life." With a unified, simple, and very public shared local online communication channel that is open to all, these benefits can be unleashed.
BeNeighbors.org - Twin Cities Neighbors Forums is a community outreach campaign led by E-Democracy. Our neighbors forums foster "community life exchange" with local civic issues included. Our city-wide forums give you a focused place to raise public voices in local democracy. Invite Others - Send them to: http://beneighbors.org
Building off previous inclusion efforts, in 2012 we are launching a new grant-funded inclusion campaign to grow our St. Paul forums with the greatest diversity possible to over 10,000 members in three years. Fundraising to include Minneapolis and other communities is planned.
