Great new video from the West Virginia Center for Civic Life

Take a moment to enjoy this wonderful 8-minute video created by the West Virginia Center for Civic Life (an NCDD organizational member, directed by the amazing Betty Knighton).  They did a beautiful job capturing the importance and promise of dialogue and deliberation.

You may want to use this video to promote your own public engagement work.  You can access the video at YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFckX5rUi9I.

The West Virginia Center for Civic Life is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that helps engage citizens in community discussions of important public issues that affect West Virginia and the nation.  The Center is the hub of a network of people who want to improve their skills in engaging citizens in the civic life of their communities and of organizations that are working to engage productively with the communities they serve.

Part of the National Issues Forums network, they consult with groups of citizens throughout West Virginia who want to use the principles of deliberative democracy to solve community problems; they organize and convene deliberative forums on public policy issues important in West Virginia; and they develop written issue guides, and compile statewide reports.
