Because Democracy Matters

The Chiesman Center for Democracy is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that promotes and supports civic education, community engagement and organizational/leadership development.  Through our programs, we encourage citizens of all ages to be active participants in the very fabric of their communities. 


“They (Chiesman Center for Democracy) helped us think beyond where we usually go and address areas of our organization and development that would have never gotten addressed without their direction and knowledge.”
