We want to share a dream with you, one that
starts by reclaiming the idea of ^patriotism^ and
restoring its original and positive meaning.
We see patriotism as grass-roots efforts to promote a*participatory* democracy,
and making citizenship into an everyday *active* verb.
Local political action should be so much more
than just replying to emails asking us to send money to
national-level politics & election campaigns.
This website reflects ideas by Eric Liu and Nick Hanauer, authors of
“True Patriots” and “Gardens of Democracy”
We are proposing a new, non-partisan, non-electorial political
movement based citizen participation by those of us who
see the need to personally “tend” the gardens of democracy
