Represent California plans a new constitutional convention for the state of California wherein all convention delegates are selected by lot.
Selecting convention delegates by lot puts the people themselves at the center of governance. All over the world, democratic lotteries have helped governments tackle difficult policy decisions. Fair, transparent, inclusive, and trusted, lottery selected panels and assemblies have shown everyday people to be capable of extraordinary collaboration and sophisticated decision making.
WHAT'S THE PLAN?
Hold Constitutional Convention with lottery- selected delegates. At the same time, conduct public outreach campaign to build awareness of the convention.
Two ballot measures. Ballot Measure 1 - Allows a new constitution to be put in place by initiative, Ballot Measure 2 - Establishes the Represent CA proposal as the new constitution.
An improved democratic system for California, able to tackle severe and complex challenges.
