Arsalyn, a non-partisan
program of Ludwick
promotes youth civic
and political engagement.
Each year the Arsalyn Program sponsors a national conference designed to serve as a respectful, neutral forum where diverse individuals promoting youth civic and political engagement can meet as colleagues. In addition to opportunities for networking, Arsalyn’s national conferences enable participants to look at ways to get involved in the democratic process and develop a sense of common purpose in working toward their goals.
Arsalyn's national conferences are open to individuals and organizations that identify with Arsalyn's mission and are working to promote youth civic and political engagement. Arsalyn provides funding for participants’ travel, lodging, food, and conference materials. To optimize interaction between participants attendance is usually limited to 120 people.
This year’s national conference will take place in Washington DC the 9th through 12th of August and will be entitled “Bridging the Partisan Divide: Rediscovering Deliberation.” The goal is to bring young people together so they can discuss how people with differing opinions can deliberate to solve common problems through the political process.
We have had wonderful speakers participate in our past conferences who represent a wide variety of political views. Speakers have included:
- Andrei Cherny: Former White House Speechwriter.
- Peter Beinart: Editor of The New Republic magazine.
- Jonah Goldberg: Editor at Large of National Review Online.
- William Powers: Respected journalist writing for The Atlantic and National Journal..
