Virginia onAir

This VA Government Hub supports Virginians and their democracy by bringing together information, experts, organizations, policy makers, and the public to facilitate greater engagement in federal, state, and local politics and more civil, positive discussions and collaborations on important issues and governance.

The Virginia Government Hub is one of the 50 state government hubs being launched later this year. The state hubs can  be found at the national US Government Hub. The US Government network is supported by the nonpartisan, nonprofit Democracy onAir.

onAir Networks

The onAir Networks mission is to make it easy to find, learn about, and interact with people and organizations who are developing and implementing solutions to global and local challenges – public launch in November 2023.

  •  Each onAir network uses the AIR software system and has a central Hub (e.g. US  Government Network) and related sub-Hubs (e.g. 50 state Hubs like the VA Government Hub).  Initial Hub content is aggregated from publicly available sources e.g. from wikipedia and government agencies and freely viewable by everyone.
  • Each Hub’s administration and curation is led by one or more university-based research centers or academic programs with affiliated associations, NGOs, and government agencies.
  • Anyone can become an onAir member. Your voice matters onAir and  it’s free. We encourage high school and college students and the interested public to participate in online and aircast discussions and collaborations as long as they follow a hub’s guidelines.
  • Our  first onAir networks are focused on how to support democracy around the world starting with the US and India networks. We have also begun networks around other key grand challenges such as climate change,  immigration, and cybersecurity.
  • Each network is supported by individual donations, foundation and government grants, and sponsors. In addition, profile posts of organizations and individuals can be curated by the identified person or group for a monthly fee.
  • OnAir Networks collaborates with its university partners to convene in person events like the Meet the Changemakers Day at GMU. These events will give students, faculty, and the public an opportunity to learn about and meet with researchers and research centers as well as federal, state, and local policy makers and other changemakers.
  • OnAir networks is a nonpartisan, 501c3 nonprofit that assists its network curators with fundraising and accounting as well as provide technical and management support.

Learn. Discuss. Collaborate. Make a Difference.
