CivCity is an Ann Arbor-based nonproft organization founded in 2014 to address voter apathy and disillusionment with government at all levels. The Executive Director Mary Morgan cited her personal move out of Ann Arbor and the organizations uncertain funding environment as reasons for closing the organization. The University of Michigan Ginsberg Center, the United Way of Washtenaw County, and the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation have offered to co-convene a community conversation about how to continue CivCity’s nonpartisan civic mission after the organization is dissolved. Details of that meeting will be available on the CivCity website, civcity.org.

Fittingly, then, Chris DuPont has titled his forthcoming album Floodplains, evoking a subtle but potent force of nature where a river mimics the unpredictable bends of life, depositing
