Your Input Matters to Jay Costa.
I’m taking part in the pilot of a civic engagement mobile application “Be The Change.”
Even before COVID-19, more and more of our communication had become virtual, and now – the majority of our contact is done that way. Be The Change is an exciting tool for my constituents to let my office and I know what’s happening in their neighborhoods. I can’t wait to work through this pilot period and help folks with their concerns on a new platform.
Users can share their concerns by adding a title, description, and photo to their post. Neighbors are able to see the issues shared in their community as well as the responses provided by the elected officials office. Using real-time community generated input, the goal of the Be the Change is to facilitate safe and meaningful civic action through issue advocacy and direct outreach to elected officials.
