The Trek is a Civics Unplugged series where community members participate in meaningful discussions on topics that are too often neglected when thinking about building the future. Through prompting questions and provocations, we venture together into complex but important conversations related to building the future and democracy. We understand that this work requires ongoing dialogue but it's a journey worth trekking through.

Some past guests include leaders of Chobani, Google, the United Nations, Harvard, Oxford, and more.

There is no prep needed for guests. A member of our community will facilitate the free-flowing conversation.
