Citizen rights are frequently top of mind, but host Eric Liu turns our attention to responsibilities. "Civic engagement isn't just voting or saying yes to jury duty. The new civic engagement is running for office," according to the founder of an online service that helps organize campaigns and manage political offices. We'll profile some local school board members (elected on their first try) who share what they learned on the campaign trail. And our in-studio guest talks about her unsuccessful run for office and how she landed a job at City Hall anyway. While running for office is challenging, Liu explains the reward is the evolution of community solutions.
