Together we can make Local Governments that work in the 21st Century

The Peer Network is where local government innovators connect to share resources and best practices, and collaborate on common problems. Through regular trainings, discussions, and events civic innovators are empowered to be more effective leaders working together to build a 21st century government from within the walls of city hall.
