We are witnessing a dramatic increase in the power and impact of technology on our daily lives and on our democracy. Social media algorithms mediate our access to news and information at the heart of our civic discourse. Artificial Intelligence is rapidly emerging to transform what we can create and learn. Mis- and disinformation hamper the ability for people to understand what is true. Civic data is now critical to the effectiveness of the institutions charged with strengthening our democracy. These factors combine to transform how we live, work, vote, interact, and obtain information. All factors have a tremendous impact on liberty, equity, inclusion, and belonging.
To make sense of the profound role of technology in our civic life, the 2023 National Conference on Citizenship will bring together civic leaders, practitioners, elected officials and experts, to discuss how we can shape the future of citizenship.
For the first time, the conference is being co-produced by the National Conference on Citizenship and the National Civic League, two historic organizations that have been strengthening democracy in America for a combined total of 206 years! The Charles F. Kettering Foundation, another longtime pillar of civic life, is the lead sponsor of the event.
