Democracy is more than a form of government; it is primarily a mode of associated living, of conjoint communicated experience.
— John Dewey


CITIZENS’ ASSEMBLIES & OTHER IMPLEMENTATIONS OF DELIBERATIVE DEMOCRACY 

We work with local governments to organize citizens’ assemblies - panels of citizens selected by lottery and paid to learn, deliberate, and decide on solutions to complex issues over several months. This model has shown great promise worldwide in addressing intractable problems and improving people’s faith in democracy.

[2022 — Present:]
Burlington Citizens’ Assembly #001
