Why it works
By putting citizens at the center of governance, citizen engagement can be a key driver of change
We make big things happen
PeopleSourced Policy is a nonprofit, nonpartisan civic engagement organization that crowdsources public policy solutions with the goal of increasing access and community engagement in the local political process. We will remove the gap between citizens and policymakers, creating a more engaged citizenry and a more responsive and representative government. By acting as a forum for the general public, policymakers, academics, and all other interested stakeholders to debate, compromise, and ultimately craft crowdsourced policy solutions to the major issues the public faces today, PeopleSourced Policy will engage new ideas, new voices, and new constituencies on critical community issues.
Who are we?
As a nonpartisan, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, PeopleSourced Policy* is an independent entity with no policy goals or agendas of its own. Our purpose is to amplify the voices within our community, and increase inclusion, transparency, and collaboration in policymaking.
While equitable citizen engagement is not a magic bullet that automatically leads to better development results, it certainly has the potential to make a tremendous impact when implemented correctly and in the right conditions. By putting citizens at the center of governance, citizen engagement can be a key driver of change and fundamentally alter the relationship between the government and the governed. Ultimately, citizen engagement is essential for governance that works for everyone.
