Hearing from the people of democracy is what allows our societies to thrive. With the help of organizations like The Sortition Foundation, citizens are being empowered to connect with democracy in a hands-on way. 

Joining us on this episode is Rich Rippin. As a Project Manager at The Sortition Foundation, he is a part of a team that is recruiting participants to engage in citizens’ assemblies in order to create real democracy. The Sortition Foundation accomplishes this by utilizing software they have developed to select certain individuals to take part in various political discussions and decision-making procedures. 

Tune in now to learn about:

  • How The Sortition Foundation is using its data to target specific demographics of people.
  • How citizens’ panels unite people across political divides. 
  • Common responses people have when they are selected to be a part of citizen’s panels.
