The Democracy Network
A group of citizens facilitating education on, discussion about, and engagement with democracy in America.
Beginning at the University of Virginia, the Democracy Network is working to increase participation and to reach out to University students and Charlottesville community members. This group is not limited to those interested in politics and policy. Conversely, this group is open to all citizens of our American democracy.
