Join California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom as he discusses his newly released book, Citizenville: How to Take the Town Square Digital and Reinvent Government—a guide for how ordinary citizens can use technology and social media to transform American democracy. Renowned as a political, digital, and entrepreneurial pioneer, Lieutenant Governor Newsom served two terms as the youngest mayor of San Francisco—where he granted marriage licenses to same-sex couples and fostered the city’s growth as a center for technology. The conversation will be moderated by Philadelphia Mayor Michael A. Nutter.

This program is part of the Center’s 10th anniversary celebration as the museum of “We the People.”
