Join the Democracy & Diplomacy Community

Rising authoritarianism, polarization, disinformation, inequality, not to mention economic insecurity, environmental pollution, and climate change pose serious threats to life on Earth. What is one to do?  It’s easy to feel overwhelmed or powerless given how large, intertwined and complex our world is.  But there are things we can do. We can connect, learn and act together. We can invest in democracy and diplomacy because the problems we face demand not demagogues and strongmen, but rather citizens and diplomats.

In 2022, building on the 15,000+ people connected with our work, Learning Life is developing a new Democracy & Diplomacy Community (DDC) to offer learning and networking events, opportunities to share your work with a wider audience, and to support our work developing a democracy learning community in the US capital region and family diplomacy for a more caring world.  Individuals who donate $100 or more to Learning Life become members of the DDC, and receive:

1. Access to DDC online events, like democracy and diplomacy dialogues, including discussions with authors, experts and scholars, plus professional networking and learning events.

2. Invitations to in-person DDC and Learning Life social events in metro Washington DC.

3. Opportunities to promote your own democracy or diplomacy articles, books, reports and events, including live discussions.

4. Opportunities to sponsor Learning Life’s Family Diplomacy Initiative or Democracy Learning Community when you or your organization give $500, or more.

5. Learning Life democracy and diplomacy stories and ideas exclusively for DDC members.

6. Recognition as a member of Learning Life’s DDC at Learning Life’s website, social media and in our annual fundraising event program.

To join the DDC, simply make a donation of $100 or more at Learning Life’s donation page.  If you do not wish to be recognized as a DDC member on Learning Life’s website, social media, and in our annual fundraising event program, please write “Anonymous” in the Note box on our donation page.
