"It is a great pleasure to welcome It’s a wonderful idea, with great promise to provide a platform for meaningful civic action without the severely distorting interference of concentrated power, private or state. is insulated from the forces that have been so destructive of functioning democracy and is readily available for the kinds of constructive use that are so badly needed today."

"Civ.Works is the product of very similar thinking to PlaceSpeak in that it seeks to authenticate the online civic engagement process with the objective, ultimately, to build trust in democracy. I met Civ.Works founder, George Polisner, after he famously resigned from Oracle in protest to its CEO joining Trump’s technology caucus. His courage and the strength of his convictions are evident in the creation of Civ.Works. Together, we are stronger in combining our compatible efforts in Canada and the United States, which has the potential to expand to other democracies and globally."
