What is the Democracy In A Box Experience?

Democracy In A Box is guided by the goal of deepening civic knowledge and engagement through active conversations that bridge ideological divides with civility.

In collaboration with seasoned partner organizations such as BridgeUSA, we have designed tried-and-true formats to host conversations in a brave space that encourages dialog at club-wide (event) or small group (creative energy) levels.

Structured conversations framed around a question that bridges political divides allow for all voices to be heard in an equitable manner, and encourages civil discussion of topics that might feel uncomfortable, yet ultimately lead to deeper mutual understanding.
