Organization Profile

Healthy Democracy

Healthy Democracy is a nonpartisan nonprofit organization that works to elevate the voices of everyday people, bring new faces to public decision making, and design a more collaborative democracy together. As a leading innovator in the field of deliberative democracy, Healthy Democracy designs and coordinates lottery-selected processes that radically expand who participates in our democracy and set a new standard for collaborative politics.

These Lottery-Selected Panels, also called citizens’ assemblies or policy juries, are a tested democratic innovation that tackles our most difficult policy issues –­ from housing to health care – by radically transforming both who participates in our democracy and how decisions are made.
