The People was born out of a question that original members social activist Andrew Shue and well-known conservative pollster Frank Luntz asked themselves: “Do the American people really have irreconcilable differences?”
If you are interested in working across the political aisle to restore the will of the people in the United States, ThePeople.org wants you. The People is a nonprofit organization with a mission to bring Americans together to engage in civil discourse and to establish and carry out nonpartisan governmental reforms.
By doing so, people will live in a truly representative democracy. By activating all citizens and bringing the country together, one collective voice will be established and the average person can be heard. The organization will help individuals organize around common causes, rounding out strengths and weaknesses, and connecting them with others to accelerate their efforts. This will help the organization to facilitate productive dialogue between those with variation in beliefs and promote action to address needed governmental reforms.
The event at the Clinton School is one of more than 30 meetings the organization is holding across the country to provide a forum for finding shared issues, creating solutions at the grassroots level, and recruiting volunteers to join the movement and take action.
Join them for the Arkansas launch session with a representative from The People.
All Clinton School Speaker Series events are free and open to the public. Reserve your seats by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (501) 683-5239.
