On Saturday 22nd June at mid-day CT, the Deliberation Gateway will draw together a group of individuals from across the U.S. to consider which of society’s unmet needs deliberative democracy could deliver.
How do you build communities? How can we re-connect across cities and states when it seems that we are all so hostile to strangers and those with other beliefs? How can politicians effectively engage with millions of citizens and make sure they are faithfully representing their constituents? How can cities, states and other civic bureaucracies maintain connections with hundreds of organizations and be sure that citizens are receiving effective municipal services? How can citizens ensure that taxes are directly channeled into beneficial avenues?
