The Next Louisville: Civic Assembly

  •

The American Assembly has partnered with with 89.3 WFPL News in Louisville, Kentucky for the second installment of our Civic Assembly Initiative.

The Civic Assembly is a pilot process for strengthening the feedback loops between citizens, civic groups, elected leaders, and local media in communities.  The Assembly is built around a novel ‘self-generating’ online survey methodology called Polis, in which survey participants respond to statements made by one another, resulting in dynamic opinion groups. A successful Pol.is survey produces a statistical portrait of the concerns and priorities of a community.  Unlike conventional surveys, this process often leads in unpredictable directions. The results of our previous Assembly, held in Bowling Green, Kentucky, are reported here.

The Next Louisville: Civic Assembly will feature a 12-day Virtual Town Hall, followed by a series of community conversations to discuss the results. More information on the assembly, taking place from February 10-21, 2020, can be found here.
