Register for an Online Conversation on Fixing Politics

The National Issues Forums Institute, an NCDD organizational partner, is hosting an exciting conversation next Tuesday, July 8th, that we want to make sure you hear about. NIFI is inviting folks to register for an online conversation on the topic of its new issue guide, Fixing American Politics, utilizing new technology from our partners at the Kettering Foundation.

NCDD’s director, Sandy Heierbacher, and other NCDDers will be participating in this live at a workshop at Kettering, and we hope you can join them! You can find more details in the letter below from NIFI’s Northern Virginia affiliate or by reading NIFI’s original announcement here.

NIF-logoI’m writing to invite you to join a new experiment, an online National Issues Forum.

It takes place Tuesday, July 8 at 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm EDT. All you need to participate is a web browser and the willingness to use chat for conversation.

The topic is “Political Fix – How Do We Get American Politics Back on Track?” You can download the issue guide by clicking here. The issue guide provides the road map for our discussion and essential background. If you’d like to watch a three-minute video that previews the topic, you can view by clicking here.

You can register by completing the online form at the new website of National Issues Forums of Northern Virginia at www.nifnva.org. There are only a few spots left – first-come, first-served – but more forums are coming.

The forum is a test of a new software tool from the Kettering Foundation that will hopefully help bring moderated deliberation on national issues to a wider audience.

I hope you are as interested as I am in helping to develop this new tool for more people to participate in political life.
