Deliberations. US is a non-partisan organization dedicated to reinvigorating our democracy through fostering civic engagement and learning among America’s college students. By engaging America’s youth in fact-based, nonpartisan and balanced deliberations, we’ll foster informed opinions, advance communication and critical thinking skills, reveal common ground, and bring democracy back to the people.
Please join our online deliberation on the Electoral College to discuss -with people of differing views- the questions raised about how we elect our president, and how it might be different! To do so sign up for Kazm, our free online video chat platform, and then select a deliberation event in which to participate. After registering for a deliberation event, you will be sent an email with a link to the event and a brief survey on the Electoral College with some short videos to watch prior to the event embedded. At the time of the deliberation event, you will enter a Deliberations.US room in Kazm for an hour-long discussion on the Electoral College. The deliberation is organized into sections that first introduce the Electoral College then examine three potential reforms of the Electoral College. Our deliberations can accommodate any number of participants and through breakout rooms allow all participants the opportunity to speak, listen, and learn from people of diverse views and backgrounds. At the end, we will collect the participants’ views again.
