Deliberation in Schools: Donuts & Democracy


Donuts and Democracy was a deliberative event that took place on November 2nd as a part of Stanford’s inaugural Democracy Day. Resulting from a year’s worth of student advocacy, Democracy Day aimed to promote civic service and civic participation within the Stanford community. The academic holiday included a virtual discussion with former Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR), a faculty panel on civic engagement, a screening of the documentary “Boys State,” as well as a deliberative event implemented by Comm 138/238: Deliberative Democracy Practicum, which is a practicum course co-taught and sponsored by the Center for Deliberative Democracy (CDD) and Haas Center for Public Service.
