Published by Knight Commission
This paper calls on community and elected leaders to adopt sensible strategies to strengthen civic communication and citizen engagement, including the creation of a new Civic Information Corps that takes advantage of the considerable capacity and creativity of America’s young people and digital media. The report urges federal, state and local leaders to adopt five specific strategies that are critical to efforts to reverse the troubling trends away from civic engagement in recent decades. Peter Levine is the director of CIRCLE: the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement and research director of the Jonathan Tisch School of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University.
