The challenges of the twenty-first century are of an unprecedented scale. Climate change, financial instability, the housing crisis, and the need for health care are political issues that can no longer be handled on a small scale. Drawing on the lessons of open source technology, social change leader Jared Duval offers an inspiring call to action.

Join Demos, the New Leaders Council, The Overbrook Foundation, and Building Movement Project for the New York City book launch of Next Generation Democracy. Duval chronicles some of the watershed events, such as Hurricane Katrina, during which centralized leadership was not enough, and then tells the success stories of the leaders, both inside the government and out, who are finding effective, directly democratic ways to address our public challenges.

Light refreshments will be served.
