Strengthening Democracy

AmericaSpeaks works with many partner organizations to strengthen our democracy and achieve its mission. In 2002, we helped created the Deliberative Democracy Consortium. We began convening federal managers to strategize about how to make the federal government more open in 2005. In 2008, we began working with partners to convene the broader democracy reform community. And in 2010, we launched a partnership with Ascentum called ASonline.

•    Expanding the Field of Public Deliberation and Deliberative Democracy
•    Creating a More Open and Participatory Federal Government
