We Can Do Democracy Better

By selecting representative groups of everyday people by lottery, bringing them together in Citizens' Assemblies, and giving them decision making power, we can bypass career politicians captive to moneyed interests.

Everyday People Democracy

Citizens' assemblies all over the world are demonstrating that everyday people chosen by lot can engage, deliberate, and make smart policy decisions. Policy-making panels do not need to be composed of experts. When expert knowledge is required, they can call on expert testimony, just as electeds do.

Our monthly meetings are open to all and provide opportunities to hear and network with advocates from  across the United States. And we walk our talk -- our Governing Board is chosen by lot from our members.
