Pocket Democracies rely on moral certitude and ideological purity and force us to do citizenship backward. We must break free of this trap, Steve Smith told our Civic Saturday participants on Oct. 17, 2020.
CIVIC NEBRASKA strengthens our state’s civic fabric with training and programming for towns, cities, neighborhoods, and citizens.
