Forum for Democracy, a non-partisan free web site, recently launched its Beta version. Students are invited to weigh in on either side of the public policy debates the site is conducting on a weekly basis. The site encourages informed responses, including not only blogging but also video and all forms of citizen journalism, which you are encouraged to upload to the site.
Once formally launched, the site will be awarding free trips, prizes and scholarships to the best and brightest solution-based participants. The aggregated majority and minority opinions will be presented to elected representatives in Washington, D.C. as an expression of the Voice of We the People. In time students will be able to earn college credit for participation. Visit www.forumfordemocracy.com to share your views with the forum.
