In this initiative, the Connecting to Congress team will be coordinating with a number of Congressional offices to coordinate and facilitate different kinds of deliberative events. These deliberative events are a chance for citizens to connect online with other citizens and Congressional staff or even their Members of Congress, and have a deliberative discussion based on non-partisan materials and deliberative principles. These events usually last from 60 - 90 minutes and are completely online. Data from your participation in these events will become part of the dataset our team analyzes and communicates back to participating Congressional offices, but none of your information will ever be used in any identifiable way.
If you’re interested in taking part in one of these deliberative events, please fill out the form below. We’ll notify you if there are any opportunities with any of your Members of Congress or on national issues.
