The National Dialogue is the center of the online interaction
facilitated by this Website. You can participate in any
of five online forums which will be opened in successive
weeks and will host a set of parallel public discussion.
The first forum will serve to introduce the subject of
Social Security reform. It will begin as people are
first discovering this Website and will continue as long
as interest warrants.
The other four forums will be structured around Roundtables of legislators, policy experts and issue advocates. These distinguished guests will mingle with the public audience in focused discussions of specific issues, as described below.
You are invited to take part in each of the five online forums. Don't be shy about expressing your views, commenting upon things that seem important or that need clarification and advocating those positions which you feel your elected representatives should know about.
Express your views, too, in response to survey questions. We will be posting surveys throughout the course of the Dialogue to gauge public opinion and prompt further discussion.
Network Democracy begins with your public voice. Please study the resource materials available on this site and elsewhere, and express yourself clearly and convincingly.
To contribute to the online forums you must register with a valid e-mail address. A single registration suffices for all the discussions that form the National Dialogue. Detailed information on how to participate in the electronic discussion is located in the Project Information section of the Website.
