Programs: Consensus improves public policy decision making by engaging citizens in deliberative forums. In 2003, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation chose Consensus as the home for its KC Forums project. Since then, Consensus has continued offering deliberation to the local community and clients. Very quickly, Consensus became a national presence in deliberation, working with the Kettering Foundation, with MacNeil/Lehrer Productions and AmericaSpeaks on deliberative events. We have attracted local co-sponsors including the Truman Presidential Library, the Kansas City Public Library and Johnson County Library, the local press club and a state legislator. events with national organizations, legislators, and libraries. Deliberation asks citizens to consider three ways of approaching a public policy issue. It helps people move past wishful thinking and work across boundaries to find solutions.
