What are the trends and opportunities for cities, planners and technologists as they seek to engage residents and support civic participation? A discussion of what civic participation looks like during a time of social distancing with NYU Alliance for Public Interest Technology Fellow Mona Sloane and Warren Flood, Microsoft’s corporate affairs manager for Detroit.
