Citizen Designer Pledge

Individuals commit to:
• Voting in every local election open to us, not just once every four years—while encouraging our friends and family to do the same
• Choosing at least one cause to focus on for learning, knowledge sharing, and volunteering
• Meeting with fellow Citizen Designers to share stories, tools, learnings, and new action items at least once a quarter
• Attending a local governance session once a quarter

Companies commit to:
• Dedicating resources to two civic causes per year
• Donating time or resources to support the broader community of citizen designers—whether by serving as host, organizer, or sponsor
• Encouraging employees to either donate one working day a quarter to civic causes — more if possible — or participate in internally led civic projects

Citizen Designer Now! commits to:
• Creating a resource, whether by email or web, to link worthy organizations in need of services with individual designers who want to help
• Organizing social events that link the design community with worthy civic groups
• Organizing meet-ups that:
– Showcase inspiring work being done to improve our social fabric
– Allow organizations in need to share the problems they’re tackling
