LOCAL CHANGE

A PROJECT OF

THE GIVING BACK FUND

OUR MISSION

To promote civic participation by using technology to reduce the barriers between communities and government.

OUR APPROACH

Connecting communities to local governments

Giving everyone a voice and platform to hear and be heard

Encouraging civic engagement and raising awareness of how tax dollars are spent

BECAUSE LOCAL MATTERS

Federal elections are important. But it's your local government that has a huge influence on your daily life. Roads. Quality schools. Property taxes. The conduct of law enforcement. All are directed at the local level. Engage Local Change wants to raise awareness of what's happening on the ground in your community. Even more, we want you to get more involved in your local government because it's where big change begins.
