Democracy Begins with YOU

We see people organizing online, talking about a revolution, the "netroots," the "power of community," even "people-powered politics." But then they go on to complain that their neighbors are oppressing them through their condominium home-owner's associations (HOAs), their community historical preservation groups, neighborhood watch, and the like. They haven't started to actually go out in the world and talk to people and organize and communiciate and listen and maybe even start to understand and engage. 

We're here to share tools designed to do precisely that. Stories and experiences. Real-world community, not just the wimpy online kind. And effective, proven ways of linking the two.

Join us, and continue the conversation. You're part of the birth of a movement. Join us in person atNetroots Nation, DemocracyFest, and beyond.
