Please show your support of youth at NCDD 2014!

NCDD’s 6th National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation is right around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited!

We will have more students and young people joining us at NCDD 2014 than at any previous conference. We’ve made this happen through our $250 rate for full-time students (35 students have registered using this option), and through granting an […] (continue)
