icitizen is pleased to have the opportunity to partner with The Democracy Commitment for our Pilot Program during the 2016-2017 academic year. We are committed to revolutionizing the way students and their campuses interact—not only will icitizen make civic engagement simpler and more powerful for students, but participating campuses will have unprecedented access to their students’ interests and priorities in order to make better, more data-driven decisions.
Participants will be granted full access to icitizen’s client features and the opportunity to provide feedback directly impacting the platform’s continued development. Below is a summary of the features that will be implemented through the program and how they can be used to expand and enhance new or existing programs of democratic engagement.

The Democracy Commitment is proud to partner with Walk2Vote to present TDC member institutions with a unique opportunity to civically engage community college students with their communities and neighborhoods.
Walk 2 Vote is a student created civic engagement initiative that has grown from a local campus program to a national model for student civic organizing. Student leaders from the University of Houston Downtown began the Walk2Vote initiative in 2012 and have continued it annually. Their model is a guide that walks students through the process of planning their own civic engagement program on their campus.
With TDC Walk 2 Vote Challenge, students become the social capitol of their communities by engaging not only campus communities, but their neighbors and neighborhoods in voter registration and education culminating in leading their communities to the polls on election day. Click Here For More Info.
