Moderators Needed, Deliberative Democracy Session

Posted by Community College of Philadelphia on October 24, 2016

The Fox Rothschild Center for Law and Society is conducting two deliberative democracy sessions on the issue of public funding of education behind bars on Tuesday, November 15 and is looking for moderators. Two deliberative democracy sessions will be held on the 15th – one during the day in a correctional facility and one in the evening at Community College of Philadelphia’s main campus. It is not necessary to volunteer for both. Training for moderators will be held on November 10 and two sessions are offered at 1:00 p.m. or at 6:00 p.m. (It is only necessary to attend one training session.)

Deliberative democracy is a civic engagement process wherein participants are pre-surveyed, read materials on the issue, come together in structured small groups to discuss the issue and develop one question for a panel of experts. Participants then meet with experts, ask their questions and post-survey. If interested please email and indicate which session you are volunteering for to [email protected]
