Read the full text of the Citizen Designer Pledge here.

Individuals commit to:
  • Voting in every local election open to us, not just once every four years—while encouraging our friends and family to do the same
  • Choosing at least one cause to focus on for learning, knowledge sharing, and volunteering
  • Meeting with fellow Citizen Designers to share stories, tools, learnings, and new action items at least once a quarter
  • Attending a local governance session once a quarter

Companies commit to: 
  • Allowing staff time-off to vote in local elections as well as national ones
  • Dedicating resources to at least two civic causes per year
  • Donating time or resources to support the broader community of citizen designers—whether by serving as host, organizer, or sponsor
  • Encouraging employees to either donate one working day a quarter to civic causes — more if possible — or participate in internally led civic projects
In 2017, we will dedicate ourselves to solving problems larger than the ones we already know. We will be heard through the things we do.
