Democracy and Civil Engagement Retreat
Presented by the Woodhull Institute for Ethical Leadership
February 18-21st, 2010; Ancramdale, NY
Most U.S. citizens, even those with the most to offer as citizen leaders, know very little about how this country works and what they can do to make it better. In a long weekend, a team of professionals will lead a true non-partisan “Democracy 911” retreat. Retreatants will receive a core grounding in the principles of the
Constitution and the Bill of Rights, as well as a refresher on the separation of powers.
Speakers Include: Shahid Buttar, Catherine Orenstein, Jacquette Timmons, Naomi Wolf, Wende Jager-Hyman, Matthis Chiroux and Karla Jackson-Brewer
Cost: $395 plus $200 lodging, totaling $595.
Limited scholarships are available.
