The state of public dialog is broken, trust is low, and our democracy is degrading. We are forming a meetup to use education, processes, and current tools to raise the level of civic participation in support of the individual citizen and consumer.
Our small team has been developing concepts and building programs, but we can’t do this alone: the public square should be a community endeavor. We're at the point where need your voice in the conversation and to find out where we can contribute along side other programs.
What we propose is that a few of us come together weekly to establish common cause, develop, test, and deploy programs to educate, empower, and engage citizens. We envision localized programs such as: · Workshop and trainings · Public Lecture Series · Local Meetups · Private Groups (topical learning and action communities, campaign support, and mastermind groups) · School and Community programs · Mentoring programs · Organizational effectiveness programs
There are many initiates and programs taking root throughout the country. Let see how we can tap into these and find a way to make the progressive ecosystem stronger for all. I’d love to have you participate, or recommend someone who would be interested in participating in the project.
