Launch of Local Civic Health: A Guide to Building Community and Bridging Divides 

In the same way that doctors conduct an annual check-up to assess our health, we can collect information to assess the civic health of our communities. Civic health includes factors such as how much people trust each other, show up at public meetings, get involved, vote, and help out neighbors. The Carsey School has designed a guide to help people at the local level collect data to better understand what factors bring people together or push them apart. This information can help communities to thrive and strengthen democracy at the local level. Come learn about our 7-part guide including exercises around mapping the different populations who live in your community, evaluating how local spaces build or discourage community, building equity into local engagement processes, and collecting and analyzing data about civic health including surveys, dialogues, interviews, and civic photojournalism. Please join us in the virtual launch of this new guide on March 14 from 12:00 to 12:30 pm.
