The Gettysburg Project: Understanding and Revitalizing Civic Engagement. Frontline with Faculty Series.

For centuries, American democracy has been built by ordinary people standing up in the town square and using the tools available to them—from the printing press to blogs—to build organizations and social movements for change. The work of citizens engaging with each other to organize, debate, struggle, and decide created a politics of common purpose and democratic accountability - a sharp contrast with the market-based approaches that have come to dominate public policy today. As American politics becomes increasingly corrupted by those who command the most money, the only hope for shared prosperity and real democracy lies in mobilizing millions of Americans from all walks of life to be participants in shaping our collective futures on the issues most important to them. Marshall and Archon will convene leading organizers, activists, and academics in the first meeting of The Gettysburg Project, an effort to develop understandings to reinvigorate meaningful and consequential civic engagement for the 21st century. http://hausercenter.harvard.edu/?p=1951
