Lessons from a Deliberative Dialogue
In a pre-election "public affairs summit" called Politifest sponsored by Voice of San Diego, a nonprofit news organization, over 700 people in San Diego came to listen, learn, and exchange ideas about critical issues in the November 2018 election.
A featured event at Politifest was a "deliberative dialogue" convened by the San Diego Deliberation Network on the issue of affordable housing. In a one-hour session, over 40 members of the San Diego community thought through policy issues concerning affordable housing, listened to each other and exchanged ideas on improving housing affordability.
