The Case Foundation is proud to be the official online engagement sponsor of the 2009 National Conference on Citizenship (NCoC), taking place today at the Library of Congress. During this morning's session, our CEO, Jean Case, will moderate a panel on social innovation featuring Barbara Bush, Justin Rockefeller, Sonal Shah, and Diana Wells.
After the National Conference on Citizenship adjourns, a small group of approximately 100 nonprofit leaders will participate in a special working session entitled "Engaging Citizen 2.0: From Obama to the ‘MyFaceTube’ Revolution, How is Social Media Reshaping Civic Engagement?". This session, which is co-presented by the Case Foundation, NCoC and the Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement, will engage nonprofit and philanthropic leaders in a timely discussion on how new tools, technologies and participatory approaches are changing the way we work to catalyze civic action.
Expert panelists and speakers will include:
- Diana Aviv (Independent Sector)
- Scott Heiferman (Meetup.org)
- Jake Brewer (Sunlight Foundation)
- Todd Ziegler (Pickens Plan)
- Adam Connor (Facebook)
- Micah Sifry (Personal Democracy Forum)
- Anne Mosle (Kellogg Foundation)
- Craig Newmark (Craigslist)
- Joe Trippi (political strategist)
The Case Foundation's Michael Smith will moderate a panel discussion and Kari Saratovsky will participate in the session as a discussion leader.
