Registration open for Special NCDD Confab on Everyday Democracy’s Approach to Change

We’ve got a special treat in store for you for next month’s NCDD Confab.  On Wednesday, March 26 from 2:00 to 3:00 Eastern (11-noon Pacific), we’ll spend time with the staff of one of NCDD’s founding members, Everyday Democracy. We’ll explore what Everyday Democracy has learned over the years, through their close work with community partners, about how to create dialogue and change.

Everyday Democracy, led by my good friend Martha McCoy, is one of the most respected organizations in our field — though in my opinion they’re pretty low key and humble about their expertise. This is a wonderful opportunity for NCDD members to learn more about Everyday Democracy’s innovative work in hundreds of communities across the country (I’m sure you’ve heard of the “study circles” approach they’ve pioneered), and take a look at tools and features on their new website that are designed to provide change makers with resources for creating change in their own communities.

Malik Russell, Communications Director, and Carolyne Abdullah, Director of Community Assistance, will be presenting in the webinar.

More about Everyday Democracy…

Everyday Democracy helps communities build their own capacity for inclusive dialogue and positive change. Everyday Democracy’s ultimate aim is to create a national civic infrastructure that supports and values everyone’s voice and participation.

Because structural racism and other structural inequities affect communities everywhere, Everyday Democracy helps community groups use an “equity lens” in every phase of dialogue and change – coalition building, messaging, recruitment, issue framing, facilitation, and linking the results of their dialogues to action and change. They provide advice, training and flexible how-to resources on a wide range of issues – including poverty, racial equity, education, building strong neighborhoods, community-police relations, violence, early childhood, and community planning.

Glance at the EvDem/Study Circles tag in the NCDD Resource Center to get a sense of the breadth and depth of work these folks do!
