Start a Kitchen Table with your friends, neighbors and acquaintances.
We have a democracy, yet, as we all know, the number of people who get involved, or even vote, is very small. The goal of the Kitchen Table Democracy is to get people involved, discuss political candidates and issues, have them motivate others, and get out the vote. Our approach is to gather around a kitchen table (or any other comfortable setting) periodically to accomplish the above.
Sometimes we invite in speakers, sometimes we screen documentaries, sometimes we organize voter registration drives, or letter writing, or fund raising. Sometimes we just sit and talk about issues.
It's easy. Why not start a Kitchen Table with your friends, neighbors and acquaintances? See the Kitchen Table Recipe for a general framework on how to do this. If you want to talk to someone about starting a Table, send an email to email@example.com and tell us where you are located (zip code helps) and if you have a number of people lined up to join you. Include your email address and/or phone number.
Join a Kitchen Table. See if there is one near you.
If you do not want to start your own Kitchen Table, but would like to join an existing one, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to see if there is a Table organized nearby.
Tell us that you want to know if there is a Kitchen Table near where you live - your zip code would really be helpful - include your email address (and/or your phone number) and someone will contact you with the Kitchen Table Democracy Table closest to you, if there is one.
