Together we will harness the power of online tools to strengthen communities, build democracy, and increase participation in public life.
We put a special emphasis on reaching low-income, culturally diverse communities and neighborhoods less likely to be served by other online social media groups.
By using targeted outreach efforts to reach people "where they are," we are building the world's largest network of highly diverse, online forums.
In addition to our local activities, we share lessons and globally connect people interested in building online community and civic engagement.
The goals of E-Democracy are:
Strengthen, broaden, and stimulate diverse engagement through effective, meaningful, and informed online discussion and exchange on public issues
Empower people through interactions, experiences, and online skills to have an impact on their communities and governments
Develop, leverage, and disseminate online practices and tools from around the world to promote engagement and active citizenship
