Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Americans have not witnessed a meaningful debate of a major issue in their lifetimes. It is incumbent upon those of us who believe that America deserves better than this - because America is better than this - to provide the public with the critical information it needs before every major decision. And we need to do this by ensuring that the public has access to a debate that reflects the reality of the facts on the ground, not the partisan, bumper-sticker summaries conveyed by an ever-compliant media. The You Defend It Debate Tour exists for the sole purpose of providing citizens with a thorough, accurate, and honest understanding of how their lives will actually be affected when a divisive issue in their state is resolved.
Defend It, Inc., organizes debates of the most pressing, current issues. The debates are held at a colleges and universities. The debaters are prominent individuals who are deeply involved with the issue being debated, and who represent opposing points of view.
You Defend It debates are governed by two simple rules: 1) each debater must directly answer the questions that are asked; and 2) each must do so without a single reference to the other debater’s argument, political party, or perceived philosophy. In other words, debaters must show up with their own solution - and defend it.
