During the month of November, KUAF will participate in the national movement called The Purple Project for Democracy. The Purple Project is a non-partisan coalition, campaign and movement, spanning the breadth of American society "to rediscover and recommit to our democratic values and institutions."

Listen for a special civics education series on the Community Spotlight, for 60-Second Civics segments on Ozarks at Large, as well as interviews with local and state civil servants and educators discussing the roles and function of government - local, statewide and nationally.
Get involved in The Purple Project for Democracy! Join us on Saturday, November 16th in the Walker Community Room of the Fayetteville Public Library from 2-3:30pm for a panel discussion titled, The Purple Project: A (Re)Introduction to American Democracy.
