To help you organize and animate your Cocktail Party Civics (CPC) Meetup Everywhere event, we have created a series of two-page Conversation Starter Handouts, available for download right here, right now!

These handouts reflect OVF's belief in "politics without the rant." We take the stand that politics should be actively discussed amongst CPC Handoutfriends and those we meet - without partisan political groups deciding the agenda.  You can lead a discussion about politics that isn't polarizing and you can participate in a discussion about politics that isn't hostile.  Imagine that!  

CPC is about being an informed citizen who fully participates in the electoral process, no matter who you are or where you are.  Let's break free from partisan shackles - and start talking.

"Let us not forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us.  The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressman and government officials, but the voters of this country."
Thirty-second U.S. President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, (1882-1945)

This is the heart and soul of the U.S. political system: the American voter; in short, this is you.  

Cocktail Party Civics (CPC) - Conversation Starter Handouts

Getting together with other U.S. citizens to discuss some the CPC topics may be an eye-opening experience!  OVF has selected themes that reveal the foundations for governmental action in a variety of arenas, and each Handout is as relevant and contemporary as the next.
