Nov 2020 Panel with Design for America: Agents of Change: Civic Participation, Practice, & Presence

“In the first Sparks Session post US Election Day, the DFA Network reflected on how the future of social impact and the ability to create change is dependent upon continued, habituated civic engagement.

Led by Alvin Schexnider (IL Department of Human Services), Jenny Kempson (US Department of Veteran Affairs), and Lulu Mickelson (Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles), the three shared their philosophies around being agents of change, and design’s role of impacting the civic sector on interpersonal, local and national levels.”
