In keeping with Public Agenda’s commitment to a pluralistic democracy, we aspire to a membership that is diverse in background, experience, opinion, and ideology. We seek members who share a commitment to the fundamental principles of democracy but among whom there is a wide range of views on how best to enact those principles in practice.

In keeping with our belief that an engaged citizenry is essential to the health and strength of our democracy, Public Agenda encourages Board members to express views on public questions and to demonstrate support for candidates for elective office in keeping with their own convictions. Such expressions and actions do not represent the views of Public Agenda. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Public Agenda does not advocate for or otherwise support the election of any candidate for public office, nor do we advocate for or otherwise support any political party.
