The 2020 Election has left people feeling confused and even unsure about the future of American democracy. 

Were you asking yourself, "What happened?" as you watched the election returns?
   And what were you feeling in those days following the vote?

Today as the WORLD watches the chaotic display in United States many citizens feel tired, confused, and even disgusted.  The process has resulted in in many questions about why it has to be this way? And what needs to happen for it to be better?  More importantly, people in the United States want to know what can be done to make the elections every four years less chaotic and more democratic.

What do you want?  How would having comprehensive information, that you can take at your own pace, be of help to you? And what would it mean in your life to meet others who are also concerned enough to find answers, to find direction during these times of upheaval?

 

Democratic elections are to reflect the needs and will of the citizens. But today, the United States is in the midst of a struggle to preserve both its democracy and the integrity of its elections. For citizens, there are only two paths, to remain part of the problem, or to become part of the solution.
   To become part of the solution is the better choice but one that will require your investment of time, education, updating your understanding of democracy, but most importantly, your engagement in your community, state, and country.
So, if you're ready? Let's get going!

In this course, "ELECTION SECURITY DISRUPTION" we are going to SLOW ...THINGS  ... DOWN.  In terms of all the information, helping you process the flood of information, and the competing political agendas. With each module, you will be able to evaluate and assess the factors which contributed to the insecurity in U.S. elections as well as find new methods for future elections.  At the end of this course you will realize your significance to U.S. democracy.  And you will also be given many ideas that empower you, as an antidote to the present sense of dis-empowerment.

The content does not engage in using over-heated exaggerations or over-simplified polarizing examples to make a point. Instead, the material is anchored in historical context, geo-political realities, domestic needs, and the evolving nature of change. Fundamentally you will invited to consider, "What do I think about this?"  

If you are someone who cares about your vote, your country, and the future of U.S. democracy, this is for you! 

 

Here at Out of the Box International® we know that you are foundational to a functioning democracy.

"ELECTION SECURITY DISRUPTION" IS FOR ANYONE

Whether you have a PhD or a high school diploma, you care.  Whether you are a single mother or a busy executive, you are someone who cares. And if you want to have the opportunity to really look at some of the important issues that impact your life, this course is for you.  It's true, the realities & issues of our time are messy, confusing, and complicated.  But you don't have to be resigned to the current conditions.

The most dangerous threat to citizen engagement in democracy is the persistence of the misinformation & disinformation campaigns that are coming from either foreign sources or worse, U.S. citizens who want to turn elections into strategies of mass manipulation. In both cases, the plan is to take advantage of citizens who are busy working to take care of their families and have limited time to acquire more knowledge so that exaggerations, bad information, and misdirections have less effect on the voting public.

"Yes, I want to know more about why the 2020 election turned out the way it did!"
