Get Involved

We are a new center, and we want all who are interested in democracy to get involved. We welcome all to our events and are very open to new ideas. The first step for most will be to join our mailing list, so that you can stay informed about the evolution of the center. You are also welcome to email with any thoughts or ideas.
