Voice of the People

Voice Of the People is a non-partisan organization that seeks to re-anchor our democracy in its founding principles by giving ‘We the People’ a greater role in government. VOP furthers the use of innovative methods and technology to give the American people a more effective voice in the policymaking process.

​Why We Invested

Voice of the People (VOP) has developed an innovative model for ensuring that Members of Congress are informed by the views of their constituents, called a Citizen Cabinet. At the Democracy Fund, we believe that a stronger, healthier democracy will require bold new ideas that reassert the voice of the American public in our governance process. By demonstrating the value of the Citizen Cabinet concept, the pilot project will set the stage for the creation of a national Citizen Cabinet to provide policy makers with an independent channel to better understand the informed views of the American public. VOP proposes to carry out Citizen Cabinet surveys on seven new policy topics in an expanded number of states and national sample while broadly promote the idea of the Citizen Cabinet to Congress, the media, and the public.
