Resources From National Organizations

Public deliberation has been a critical topic in our democratic society, dating back to New England town meetings. A lot has changed in the ensuing centuries, including much more guidance on how to run a modern town meeting! Here are a few of the most well-known. You can find them on the internet.

National Issues Forums

Kettering Foundation

Study Circles

Public Agenda

Public Conversations Project

National Institute for Civil Discourse

You will find more information at any one of these sites than we have provided in our toolkit. So why have we offered you the work done by PLFO? We wanted to offer this toolkit because our strategies were developed in Owensboro. And the local examples are particularly helpful in visualizing how you could run your own forum in the Owensboro area. That said, you will not go wrong with the work of these national organizations.
