OpenGov Across America
OpenGov CEO Zac Bookman has set out on a nearly 4,000-mile, cross-country bike tour across nine states to thank, meet with, and hear directly from town, city, and county leaders about how their governments have evolved to address the urgent needs of their communities in the pandemic. This campaign is meant to raise awareness of local public sector visionaries, who have devoted themselves to the betterment of their communities during a challenging time and highlight the important role they’ve played in continuing to help us move forward.
In conjunction with this ride, OpenGov has committed to collaborating with the Sandra Day O’Connor Institute For American Democracy to increase awareness of the importance of civic engagement, civics education, and civil discourse. Together, they will raise funds to help educate future civic leaders and enable a more informed and engaged citizenry.
The Bike Route
As OpenGov looks to shed light on the importance of local leadership, government leaders and public-sector allies are encouraged to post photos and videos of themselves thanking someone in the public sector or sharing how they got into public service on LinkedIn or Twitter with #OpenGovAcrossAmerica and #GovLove, for an opportunity to be featured on OpenGov’s social channels.
