American Democracy Project Steering Committee 

Serving as advisers and thought partners, the ADP Steering Committee is comprised of talented and thoughtful individuals who are dedicated to the collective purpose of preparing the next generation of informed and engaged citizens.

Our members are leaders and advocates.

The role of the ADP Steering Committee is not only to provide guidance and expertise on the design and development of programs and practices that are integral, relational, organic, and generative, but also to champion these efforts and envision the thriving democracy we aspire to enact and support through our work. ADP Steering Committee meetings are also attended by ad hoc members, notably the current Civic Fellows and our recent ADP Civic Engagement Award winners.
