Below are a number
of resources for those interested in building effective online spaces and
events for political discourse. What we do is fairly rare, but universal
lessons can be applied from many online discussions, except that issue-based
political conflict is something we foster while many online facilitiation

to give your fellow citizens a voice in their communities.
