The #citizenactive video blog contains stories about people and how they interact with their governments on the federal, state and local level. It's part civics, part history and designed to encourage active participation in government. I originally pitched it as a series on how government is supposed to work. The early story ideas were all mine, but I also welcome suggestions from the public.
