Civic Impact Birthday Party

Oh, what a night!

Civic Impact Birthday Party

Oh, what a night!

On Wednesday, the Citizen celebrated two years of solutions-oriented journalism with a Civic Impact Birthday Bash. But enough about us…

To say that we were humbled by last night’s turnout would be an understatement. With attendance in the triple digits, this was a night to celebrate YOU—Disruptors, Citizens of the Week, change-makers and creators of social impact-alike! We couldn’t have gotten this far without our members. We hope to continue to bring you local stories that shine a light on the darkest corners and celebrate solutions that challenge us all to be better citizens of the planet.
