Debating for Democracy (D4D) ™ is a distinctive campus-based co-curricular program that represents the mission of Project Pericles in action. D4D on the Road is a six-hour training workshop designed to provide novice and seasoned political activists with the tools and tactics they need to get their message across to policy makers, community leaders, and the public. These workshops will address strategy, developing an effective message, public speaking, letter writing, bill analysis, writing a press release, and how to handle a face-to-face meeting with a government official.
The 2012-2013 D4D on the Road workshops will be led by Soapbox Consulting, a leading provider of training seminars, workshops, and lobby days for many national associations including including the American Cancer Society, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, Human Rights Campaign, NAFSA: The Association of International Educators, Service Women's Action Network, and The American Wind Energy Association.
Project Pericles appreciates the generous support of the Eugene M. Lang Foundation.
