We were thrilled at the amount of involvement AND the amount of support the Core Principles for Public Engagement project received from our community. The following organizations and individuals have endorsed the collaboratively-created Core Principles for Public Engagement. Email Sandy Heierbacher, NCDD’s Director, at sandy@thataway.org, if you or your organization would like to endorse the principles as well.
