Grassroots Dayton is a not-for-profit 501C(3) organization with a great purpose: “to promote the development of citizen democracy in the Dayton region.” This is a huge goal, and Grassroots Dayton is developing plans for how to accomplish this goal.

The May 29th meeting will focus on discussing ideas outlined in this article: “How Grassroots Dayton Can Build Democracy By Building Community,”

As outlined in this article, at the May 29th meeting we will be discussing how:

  • a Grassroots Dayton internet web-site might work to create “citizen councils” that will work in cooperation with elected officials,
  • short video projects can be defined and encouraged,
  • a video festival might be organized and what it might include,
  • neighborhood community meetings for this September and October can be organized where candidates can attend and meet voters,
  • a specific fund raising idea might work to not only raise funds for Grassroots Dayton projects, and at the same time help other community groups raise funds as well.

In addition there will be plenty of open ended opportunity during the meeting for attendees to give their insight into other ideas of how Grassroots Dayton might work to fulfill its mission.

Creating a cutting edge web-site is key part of the vision for promoting citizen democracy. A Grassroots Dayton web-site already exists, but the goal is to greatly enhance this site. Posted on this site is my article, Grassroots Dayton: “Sowing The Seeds Of Democracy,” which gives an overview of the goals for Grassroots Dayton.
