Ferki Ferati and Ben Speggan join GovLove to talk about their work with the Jefferson Educational Society in Erie, Pennsylvania. The Jefferson Society has been active in creating civic dialogue, exposing residents and leaders to issues and work going on in the city as well as promoting pride in their home town of Erie. Ferki and Ben explain the role of the Jefferson Society in civic life and a successful campaign called “Our Erie,” which worked to reframe the city’s narrative.
