Welcome to the American Civic Debate Union

American Civic Debate UnionThe ACDU is dedicated to promoting public debate in social settings around the country. Participants need not have formal debate experience – rather, they should share a passion for discussing the issues of the day – political, economic, environmental, cultural and social – in a collegial format that promotes thought and engagement.
Members need not even debate themselves – lurkers are welcome.

Unlike competitive debate, the goal is not to “win.” Intelligent discussion in an informed community is an end of itself, as it promotes thought, learning and a greater commitment to shared well being of all within the community.

Also, adult refreshments are strongly endorsed.
