Clift selected as "Champion of Change"

Clift.jpgEarlier this summer, Steven Clift (MA '91) was selected as a Champion of Change winner. The White House Champion of Change for Transformative Civic Engagement award recognized 15 local leaders across the nation working to build participation in our democratic processes while using new technologies and engaging less represented communities via open government and civic hacking.

Steven launched, the world's first election information website in 1994. His "government by day, citizen by night" insights were built as leader of the State of Minnesota's first e-government initiative. He has spoken across 30 countries for over a decade from Estonia to Libya to Mongolia on open government and civic participation to support non-partisan, volunteer-powered efforts for inclusive online local democracy.
