#var:page_name# cover

Kettering Foundation's annual A Public Voice, which brings together policymakers and practitioners of National Issues Forums from around the country to discuss the work of citizen deliberations and how policymakers and citizens might align, is May 9 at the National Press Club.

This year, A Public Voice will focus on how the public thinking that is emerging from National Issues Forums on immigration (among other issues) differs from the public opinion data usually available to policymakers, as well as engaging participating policymakers in developing the topic of divisiveness for a potential future issue guide.

The DC event will be livestreamed via Facebook Live, and we want to hear from you about how difficult it can be to talk across divides in this country, what those divides look like in your communities, and how you think elected officials could help citizens bridge them.

**Your comments will be part of the live event in DC**- join the event to receive updates on when/how to participate!
