Civic Assembly on Youth Homelessness in Deschutes County

August 1 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Join the discussion and be a part of the solution.

The Central Oregon Civic Action Project, in collaboration with Deschutes County, the City of Bend, and other local governments, is conducting a civic assembly to help decide what our priorities should be for building community solutions to prevent and end youth homelessness.

A Civic Assembly is a democratic process that brings together a group of everyday people through a democratic lottery to research, discuss, and make recommendations about an important public issue. Assemblies are designed to respect each individual’s perspective while also helping to identify widely supported solutions – to get the best of both worlds. Outside research backs this up, showing that Civic Assemblies are able to be innovative and productive, even in divisive and complicated political situations. Partners in the Central Oregon Civic Action Project, or COCAP, are Oregon State University-Cascades and the nonprofits Healthy Democracy and DemocracyNext.
