The Inquiry Institute invites you to participate in a focus group:

March 14, 2008
7:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Princeton
50 Cherry Hill Road
Princeton, New Jersey 08540

•  What does it mean to be an accountable citizen?

•  How would our country and our daily lives be different if we thought of
   democracy as a partnership between accountable citizens and accountable

•  What skills would help all of us become more accountable?

In this important political year, these are some of the questions we’ll explore at the Inquiry Institute’s National Question Day program. This annual event occurs  on Albert Einstein’s birthday, March 14th, as he famously advised us that “the  most important thing is not to stop questioning”. We believe Einstein would have encouraged questions that could help us understand the meaning, expressions, and benefits of citizen accountability.

It’s natural to hold politicians accountable for how they vote and what they do, including how they make decisions. However, the spotlight of this non-partisan conversation will be on us, not on them. We wonder: What would be possible if we also held ourselves accountable for how we make political decisions and how we participate in our communities?

Dr. Marilee Adams, president of the Inquiry Institute and author of Change Your Questions, Change Your Life, says,

Great results begin with great questions. For the sake of protecting our precious democracy, it is our responsibility and privilege as citizens to ask questions, think critically, listen carefully, and engage in open-minded conversation.

Our exploration will include a process called Q-Storming™, which advances creative, critical, and collaborative thinking. This free event will be held at the Universalist Unitarian Church in Princeton, NJ. Focus group size is limited.
