Government decision-making is no longer confined to back rooms, out of the public views; it's increasingly transparent.
With declining trust in institutions, including the government, citizens now leverage powerful advocacy tools to hold authorities accountable and voice their policy preferences.

Some of these tactical tasks include:
- Digital advocacy campaigns
