The Democracy Challenge

Program Description

Learn about nine areas where our democracy is at risk. This “name your price” course is for anyone who wants to promote democracy more actively and participate in the democratic development of the Academy. It’s our chance to get to know each other and decide if Academy membership is a good ‘mutual fit.’


Media Meal Planning

Had enough of empty media carbs? Tired of filling up on unsatisfying social media? Come learn with us how to create a healthy, low-calorie, high-protein media diet in our first Interactive Learning Experience (ILX). In this four-week program, you will learn about journalism and media, and learn to make more informed decisions about where, how, and when you stay informed. This is our ‘demo’ program, focusing on a critical area of citizenship and previewing our various interactive strategies for future program designers.

When: TBD. 

Time: 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm PST

Our first place is our home; our second place is our workplace. Third Places are social spaces we come to call our home away from home. Come hang out with other Academy members. Have some fun. Make a ruckus.

Program pitch session

After completing The Democracy Challenge (TDC), start or find a learning group. Members are given a process to start a group within the PSA. Take what you learned and felt in TDC and do something about it! See the Membership Page.
