And if you can't make it to a physical event, please join us online! 

Join people from across the country to outline a vision for a better civic future, begin your potential participation with Pathways, and meet others from different backgrounds interested in working towards better governance. 

You can find all of the available time slots to participate in a group virtual event below. If none of the dates work, please contact us!

Once you’re registered for a specific time, we’ll reach back out to you to confirm and send you details on connecting to the video conference. It’s important that all participants have video access and will be in a location appropriate for a group video chat.

The agenda and activities will be the same for the virtual events as for the physical ones. There will be a few logistical differences that our facilitators will be aware of, but otherwise, it's just the same. There will be a maximum of 4-5 people per video chat.

Registering for a time:

To register for one of these times, you must head to this Doodle poll and, with your name and email address "Alex Torpey,", fill out which one of the time slots you'd like to register for. We'll reach back out to confirm and send you more information!
