Our Mission

The Right Question Institute aims to make democracy work better by teaching a strategy that allows anyone, no matter their educational, income or literacy level, to learn to ask better questions and participate more effectively in decisions that affect them.

Our Vision

A vibrant democracy in which all citizens – even those farthest from power – can think for themselves and can effectively advocate for themselves, their families and their communities.  Individual citizens confidently participating in their common and ordinary encounters with public agencies and services will produce examples of what we call  “Microdemocracy,” a new starting point for democratic action.  Microdemocracy is a cornerstone of a strong foundation for a more just society.
