*DIGITAL* Slow Democracy and the Power of Neighborliness

Susan Clark is a writer and educator focusing on community sustainability and engagement. She is the coauthor of Slow Democracy: Rediscovering Community, Bringing Decision Making Back Home, with Woden Teachout; and All Those in Favor, a book about Vermont town meetings, with Frank Bryan.
Underwriter: Keelan Family Foundation
