Welcome to the Democracy Lab at Big Tent Nation. Here in the Lab, we share projects that are under development so you can jump right in and contribute to projects that really have impact. We’re all about full transparency and collaboration, and look forward to your input. We’ve got several exciting initiatives currently underway, including the full Big Tent civic engagement platform, our next website release and the second year of the Civvys, an exciting national awards program celebrating Americans working together across the political divide. We're also part of the core planning team for the National Week of Conversation, and helping to host nine facilitated dialogues at the Boston Public Library. Explore each of these below, give us your feedback and let us know how you’d like to get involved. We need collaborators of all kinds.
