California National Issues Forum Network

The California Network is informal, but is consistently creative. Past workshop participants have taken deliberative decision making into many different arenas. Some have developed a long-term practice of deliberation, using NIF issue books on national topics. Some have developed skills and practice in issue framing for deliberation and have sponsored forums on local issues. Others have translated deliberative decision making into their professional community. Others yet have focused on developing deliberative networks in their neighborhoods and among family and friends. There are many ways to apply deliberative decision making in public life--join in and be creative!.

How have you put deliberative decision making to work? Contact us so we can include your projects, organizations and stories at
