Thoughtful Citizenship

Imagine an America where the solutions for our future result from a partnership of thoughtful politicians and thoughtful citizens...

We elect politicians to be guardians for our future. It’s only common sense to expect them to be thoughtful and careful about what’s best for all of us, our children, our grandchildren, and the world we live in. Our job as citizens is to be equally thoughtful, careful, and engaged. We participate by voting, by being well-informed, by volunteering, and by holding our politicians and ourselves accountable for our shared future.

The *Thoughtful Citizen Guidebook*(670k) is a free e-book providing helpful, non-partisan tools for thoughtful citizenship: including asking crucial questions, engaging in positive, productive conversations, and making well-considered decisions. In it you'll find contributions by a number of respected authors - Marilee Adams, Ira Chaleff, Maren & Jamie Showkeir, Juanita Brown, David Isaacs and the World Café community, Mark Levy, and Stewart Levine.

This project is sponsored by the Inquiry Institute because we believe that great results—and the best decisions—begin with asking ourselves and others the most thoughtful and important questions. Our vision is to help establish a culture of thoughtfulness, accountability, and partnership for politicians and citizens—because we’re all on the same side when it comes to wanting our great country to grow ever stronger and better.
