Democracy Field Overview

This outline provides an (in progress) overview of the democracy field -- i.e. the current work to promote healthy self-governance. It is open to the public for examination and discussion. This is a Google document.



The 2019 Civvys

The Civvys celebrate best practices in civic collaboration that put community and nation before party, ideology, and narrow interests.



Democracy Awards
