Inspire and Equip Deliberative Dialogue

In today’s polarized climate, it is critical to approach difficult issues by coming together and having constructive conversations. Facilitate and host a deliberative dialogue using exclusive Up to Us curated guides.  Up to Us offers two unique opportunities to flex your Deliberative Dialogue skills, through our National Issues Forums Guides.

Up to Us is excited to partner with the National Issues Forums Institute (NIF) to offer a micro grant of $150 to moderators* who host a forum using the NIF issue guides, “A House Divided”, “A Nation in Debt”, or "Health Care: How Can We Bring Costs Down While Getting The Care We Need?".  With the National Issues Forum (NIF) guides, you will receive moderator training and cheat sheet, exclusive access to the downloadable NIF guide, and a hosting stipend, all while building the skills to tackle today’s tough issues.

To receive the funding, apply by May 1, 2020 and host a forum using either the “A House Divided”, “A Nation in Debt”, or the "Health Care: How Can We Bring Costs Down While Getting The Care We Need?" issue guides before June 30, 2020.
