In this episode, we bring you a discussion with the architects of “America in One Room,” a ground-breaking experiment conducted in September 2019. Could our democracy work better if citizens were actually able to think through policy proposals and deliberate? Discover what happened when 500 American voters came together for a 3-day experience in self-government. Our guests share why this gathering might offer good news for the future of democracy.
