About Neighbours Forum Network
E-Democracy.org builds online public space in the heart of real democracy and community. Our mission is to harness the power of online tools to support participation in public life, strengthen communities, and build democracy.
Starting with the world's first election information website in 1994 in Minnesota, today we host over 50 local Issues Forums in 17 communities across three countries - New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In addition to these "online town halls" and our "community life" forums we promote civic engagement online around the world.
E-Democracy.org is a U.S. registered 501c.3 non-profit non-partisan organization that accepts grants and donations. We estimate that 90% of our labor is donated by volunteers. Our major Inclusive Community Engagement Online initiative is attracting substantial grant support.
