The National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation is a network of nearly 300 organizations and individuals who regularly engage millions of Americans in dialogue around today's critical issues. Often led by trained facilitators and oriented toward community problem-solving, these groups offer one of the few hopeful signs of growth in American democracy today.

NCDD's Marketing & Media Committee is working on ways to partner with the field of civic journalism. Both the civic journalism movement and the dialogue & deliberation movement are working to increase citizens' political awareness, social capital and civic engagement. The Committee plans to establish a “Dialogue Bureau” which will connect journalists to the people on the ground who can share stories about the informed voice of citizens.

Journalists covering issues from education reform to Muslim-Christian relations will be able to obtain stories about how ordinary citizens are coming together to address these contentious issues through dialogue and deliberation.

In the meantime, we encourage you to contact NCDD for information about our programs and about the dialogue and deliberation community as a whole.
