It’s time to get excited about digital inclusion in the Twin Cities!
On June 20th, the Community Technology Empowerment ProjectÂ hosts DigiDaze from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the St. Paul Rondo Community Outreach Library at the corner of Dale and University. Free Parking – enter on University going east before Dale.
From 2:00 p.m. – 3:15 p.m. in the e-classroom, join Steven Clift and “BeNeighbors.org” volunteers and participants for an insightful and in-depth presentation on inclusively connecting neighbors online. Check out DigiDaze booths before and after the presentation.
With 20,000 participants across our Twin Cities neighbors forums combined with the world’s most inclusive local online civic engagement outreach effort and challenging efforts to engage across community diversity, we have lessons to share and questions to ask. If you want to connect neighbors and communities online – across ANY platform – these tips will help us all connect thousands more residents.
RSVP not required.

The session will cover:
- Bonus – Opening preview from Knight Green Line Challenge

- Ten awesome things strong neighborhood online groups produce (be it hosted by E-Democracy, Facebook, and others)
