Debating for Democracy

Register Today! This day-long workshop will introduce a systematic framework to help participants identify solutions to problems they are concerned with and then build winning strategies to make change. This year’s workshop focuses on three issues: climate change, immigration, and LGBTQ rights. 

Through small group exercises and role plays, with trainer feedback, the daylong session takes students from researching a problem to analyzing solutions, developing strategy, building people power and meeting effectively with decision-makers. Participants will leave with concrete tools, which they can put to use in a wide variety of public policy settings and efforts.
