The DNC Host Committee’s sticker campaign wants you to share what civic engagement has done for you

The Philly Civic Action campaign is visiting neighborhoods to make sure everyday Philadelphians feel that they're a part of the convention.

Hey, uh, don’t know if you’ve heard, but Philly is hosting the Democratic National Convention next week.

No big.

Just kidding, it’s pretty huge. Accordingly, the DNC Host Committee has plenty planned to engage everyday Philadelphians during the event — such as a youth news team that will allow local students to report on the convention — said Jordan Schwartz, director of external affairs for the Host Committee, at our recent, democracy-themed Impact Solutions meetup.

In order to “engage a much broader swath of Philadelphians” in the political process, Schwartz said, the Host Committee, Young Involved Philadelphia and Urban Affairs Coalition just launched the Philly Civic Action campaign, in which the committee visits neighborhoods around the city and asks Philadelphians to write down what civic engagement has done in their communities on brightly colored stickers, reading:

  • What’s one thing this city has achieved through civic engagement?
  • How can we affect positive change in the city and your neighborhood?
  • Add to someone else’s memory, or share how you can be a resource.

The stickers will be collected and stuck on a blue replica of the LOVE statue and displayed for visitors and delegates during the convention — “They’re gonna hear from us,” Schwartz said.

The campaign kicked off at Eastern State Penitentiary’s Bastille Day celebration last week. To participate and show off what civic engagement means to Philadelphians, follow the Host Committee on Twitter to find out where the stickers will be next.
