ABOUT THE MANNAKEE CIRCLE GROUP
The Mannakee Circle Group helps organizations engage better with the public. It works only with organizations that hold a public trust — advising on strategy and social media, and designing, executing, and telling the story of large civic projects. Better engagement leads to smoother relations, more effective initiatives, and deeper impact. www.mannakeecircle.com

ABOUT THE MARYLAND COMMISSION ON CIVIC LITERACY
The Commission on Civic Literacy's purpose, as established by legislation, is to promote civic education and restore the civic mission of our schools by establishing a representative membership of individuals and organizations to meet, support, develop, and coordinate civic education programs for use in Maryland schools and throughout society. Our ultimate goal is to promote an enlightened and responsible citizenry committed to democratic principles and actively engaged in the practice of democracy. http://www.msa.md.gov/msa/mdmanual/26excom/html/09civicliteracy.html
