To effectively create change, try adjusting the arena
Citizen University TV: Adjust the Arena
2/15/201728:17

Host Eric Liu reviews a core strategy of civic power, adjusting the arena. The arena is yours to size. Do you want it to be smaller or larger, an inside or outside game, a deeper or shallower approach to exercising power? We take a look at these concepts in action with Ending the Prison Industrial Complex (EPIC), an organization leading the charge against the new youth detention center. Then, former Seattle Mayor Norman Rice - who during his tenure in the 1990s spearheaded a citywide education summit - discusses the elements of effective civic engagement and how to bring coalitions of people together for meaningful change.
