Citizens’ Initiative Review

Since 2009, Healthy Democracy has led efforts to develop and refine the Citizens’ Initiative Review process.



Oregon’s Kitchen Table

Healthy Democracy provided programmatic support for the June 2012 pilot of Oregon’s Kitchen Table, a statewide experiment led by the College of Urban and Public Affairs at Portland State University. The project gives Oregonians the chance to weigh in on our state’s most urgent public policy issues. It takes advantage of both online and in person consultations to engage citizens in the decision making process. To join the conversation and learn more, visit
