The Era of Civic Groundswell: Panel Discussion on Give to the Max Day

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When news reports are flooded with stories about revolts in Tahrir Square, Tunisia, and Wall Street, it’s hard to deny the impact online is having on civic action. Social media was an enormous part in the wildfire spread of ideas, recruitment of followers, and coordination of meet-ups that made it possible for groups to express their discontent of social matters. 

During DC Week, the DC/MD/VA metro-area community is preparing for the region's biggest giving event: Give to the Max Day: Greater Washington (give2max.org). On November 9th, residents are coming together to fundraise and rally for their favorite nonprofits, taking matters into their own hands as nonprofits face budget cuts from their steady stream of revenue. 

We bring you a panel of local experts to discuss the extent of civic action, how it can (or can’t) bring about change in a community.

Please RSVP per person attending. And please use the 6th Street entrance across from the firehouse. We look forward to seeing you there!
