CCI Virtual Advocacy: Community Engagement

April 2 @ 10:00 am

Community engagement is supposed to translate to people’s voices being heard and taken into consideration for decision making, but why does it feel like decisions are frequently made and the surrounding communities never even heard of the idea in the first place? Why are decisions made about communities without their voices at the table?

Join the Center for Civic Innovation for an exploratory conversation on what it will take for community voices to actually be incorporated into decision making at the City level. During the conversation, CCI will present initial learnings from their multi-year study on community engagement while highlighting wins and areas of improvements with the City of Atlanta’s formal community engagement process.
