People. Abraham Lincoln’s enduring words draw the focus of democracy onto human beings, a focus that is ambitious and often difficult to achieve in practice.
Confronted with apathy and lack of engagement, governments often are frustrated by tepid citizen involvement. The same six people come to public meetings, and yet outcry about the resulting public decisions is widespread. On the other hand, citizens are often disillusioned about the amount of say they actually have in the political process. When money and influence seem to speak so much louder than words, why show up to that town hall or chime in about that initiative?
The People’s Lobby works to confront both sides of the problem by restoring people to the center of the political process by means of three core stages: Selection, Deliberation, and Accountability.
