Strengthening American Democracy Guide

We’re excited to announce that Version 3 of the Strengthening American Democracy guide is released today! You can download the guide from here

The Strengthening American Democracy guide’s (“SADG”) release comes at the same time as Democracy Works, SLSV, and Maine Student Votes release the newest edition of Votes & Ballots, a suite of digital and in-person activities that supports campuses, nonprofit partners, and student leaders in facilitating a fun and collaborative nonpartisan action planning process based on SADG principles and best practices.  

Released in 2017, SADG’s first edition and its subsequent update in 2019 have been instrumental to the proliferation of nonpartisan democratic engagement efforts on college campuses and their surrounding communities throughout the country. Using SADG as a foundational document, students, faculty, student affair practitioners, and nonprofit partners have created and executed comprehensive action plans to help millions of young people register, vote, and become more active and informed participants in American democracy.
