Citizen Discussion Groups to Focus on Elections in America
The Deliberative Citizenship Initiative (DCI) is committed to enhancing the quality of our political discourse with one another through deliberative efforts that span the Davidson community and beyond. The DCI invites members of the public to join one of its fall D Teams, which are small groups of 6-10 people who will engage in facilitated group discussions about voter fraud and suppression, election security and accessibility, and the fairness and inclusivity of the American electoral system. Register here by September 2.
Concerns surrounding elections have heightened in recent years as Americans worry about voter fraud and suppression, election security and accessibility, and the fairness and inclusivity of the American electoral system. Various states have enacted stricter voting laws while other have attempted to expand access to the ballot box. As the 2022 elections approach this fall, the DCI’s D Teams will focus on the current issues, pressing challenges, and possible solutions related to voting and elections in America.
The DCI seeks individuals with diverse perspectives to participate in D Teams to share their thoughts and ideas for broadening our understanding of one another’s opinions and addressing the challenges we face – everyone’s voice is welcome and needed! Teams will meet every three weeks from early October to November, for a total of three meetings this fall. In order to build and maintain a sense of community and trust within each team, participants should commit to attending all three sessions. Virtual and in-person meeting options are available.
