We are conducting a study in the context of a research project at the University of Amsterdam, the aim of which is to examine a form of deliberative democracy in order to understand how to include foreign-born Americans under conditions where they are effectively motivated to think about issues. This is in order to better understand the societal perception of immigration as well as forming deeper communication and consensus in order to strive towards a more harmonious society.
Therefore, we would like to invite you for an interview and to our online "Boston Citizens' Jury" to discuss the issues of the Medicare For All Act specifically on "Payments for prescription drugs and approved devices and equipment," in a matter that seeks to open a dialogue through deliberative assemblies with the goal of resolving issues within demographics, communities, and the country.
The online Boston Citizen’s Jury would take place on the 20th of January starting at 8 PM EST, finishing around 10 PM on zoom. In order to ensure the information given to the “jury” is not biased towards one side of a given issue, an adversarial system will be used. You are not just voting on the bill in a yes/no manner; you are participating in a more nuanced exercise.
Please fill out the sign-in sheets by the 17th of January, to make sure to get your seat at our assembly
Thank you for your consideration,
