The National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation (NCDD) is hosting, as part of their 2006 National Conference, "Conversation Cafe: An Open Evening of Great Conversation". Part training, part dialogue, this evening event will begin with a short training in the Conversation Cafe process followed by an actual Conversation Cafe focusing on the role of dialogue in a democracy.

The training will begin at 6:15 pm in the Barcelona II room on the 3rd floor of the Renaissance Parc 55 in downtown San Francisco. The training will last until 7:30 pm, at which time we'll begin our 90-minute Conversation Cafe. Coffee and sweets will be provided for the event, and you should feel free to just show up at 7:30 pm for the dialogue.

Conversation Cafes are open, hosted conversations among diverse people on topics that matter. The simple structure provides a meeting ground where "we-the-people" can come together to listen speak, ask and learn, without being forced to agree, change or bite our tongues. Be part of one - and see what democracy feels like. Learn more at http://www.conversationcafe.org/.

NCDD Steering Committee member Susan Partnow, co-founder of Conversation Cafe, will lead the training and host the dialogue with the help of the newly-trained Cafe hosts. This event is open to the public.

About National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation:
NCDD is a coalition of dialogue and deliberative practitioners who bring together and support people, organizations, and resources in ways that expand the power of conversation to benefit society. Additional information can be found at http://thataway.org.
