ABOUT THE DELAWARE PEOPLE'S CONGRESS

The purpose of the Delaware People’s Congress is to reinvigorate civic participation across Delaware and build on the spirit of a truly organized and engaged community. This initiative is organized by Network Delaware, a community leadership development, civic engagement, and policy change organization. The idea was originally proposed in 2017 as a way to ensure all voices are “not only heard but collectively empowered.”

The People’s Congress runs on a 2-year cycle and starts with a 1-day pilot project event in April 2018. Each representative district in Delaware will have individuals serve 2-year terms. These individuals will learn how to develop policy, pass legislation, build coalitions, and also help prepare the next edition of the People’s Congress.

At the end of the People’s Congress there will be a voted on “Platform” representing the decisions of the representatives.

With your support we will work to ensure policies reflect the will of the people!
