Democracy

As our nation approaches 250 years of independence and its 57th presidential election, Community Conversations invites New Yorkers to discuss the role democracy plays in their lives as members of local, national, and global communities. Each conversation uses a short text as a starting point for discussions about civic participation and the meaning of democracy.

Community Conversations toolkits on democracy offer everything necessary for “do-it-yourself” discussions, including:

  • Texts suitable for different age groups.
  • Sample discussion questions.
  • Guidelines for starting and sustaining good conversation.
  • Tips on how to host a conversation.
