A Public Voice

For more than 30 years, the Kettering Foundation, in collaboration with the National Issues Forums Institute, has organized A Public Voice. This annual event brings together representatives from community forum groups around the country and from national dialogue and deliberation organizations, as well as elected officials and staff, to explore the contributions that a deliberative public makes to addressing some of the most challenging issues facing our communities and elected officeholders.

A Public Voice 2021 continues this conversation by bringing bipartisan members of the US House of Representatives to discuss how people can work with elected officials on shared public problems. We hope you’ll join this conversation by sharing your own stories about how you’ve worked with fellow citizens and public officials to address the persistent problems facing communities today. Kettering president and CEO David Mathews will share his reflections at the end of the event.

Sponsored by the Center for Public Deliberation, the Kettering Foundation and the National Issues Forum
