Deliberation in Schools: Baltimore High Schools in One Room

Are you interested in meaningful, open dialogue about pressing issues facing our country? Do you want to be a more well-informed citizen and (future) voter? If so, we invite you to join with hundreds of high school students from across the Baltimore region for a two-day deliberation on some of the most important issues shaping the 2020 election.

Deliberative Polling® By the People

By the People is a special project organized by MacNeil/Lehrer Productions and Nizagara-online.net to bring the views of informed, "ordinary" citizens to a national discussion on the important issues of the day. Since its launch in 2002, BTP has supported well over 200 Citizen Deliberations around the country and more than 100 national and local PBS broadcasts, on issues ranging from national security to healthcare.
