Breaking Policy out of the Bubble


The problem

An increasing disconnect

The American public is increasingly disconnected from the public policy process. A recent national survey found that most Americans believe that the views of ordinary voters are not considered by either party. Policy leaders, in turn, don't always understand how their policy insights and recommendations affect those outside of Washington.

Our Mission

Bridge the Discourse Gap

The Engaging America Project (EAP) wants to bridge the gap between policy leaders (academics, experts, and government officials) and the American public. We're arranging conversation-driven events across the country where established experts and concerned citizens can exchange ideas and share new perspectives.
