DEMOCRACY IN ACTION:
Empowering Americans to solve public problems.
We believe the informed participation of America’s diverse citizenry is crucial to achieving strong, popular solutions to challenging public issues. Many Americans, unfortunately, feel unable to engage constructively in today’s policy debates or to take action to address important challenges. We’re amping up the power of the people, plugging Americans back into their community and their government.
We believe that true democratic participation requires citizens to be informed enough to participate meaningfully in shared conversation and deliberation with their peers. That’s why we use the innovative Citizens Jury method of public engagement. Citizens Juries provide the space for a diverse group to learn and discuss together, generating thoughtful recommendations on a shared problem.
A democratic society requires more than infrequent voting. Our aim is to advance democratic participation in all areas of life. See how we can make a difference for you.
