ANNUAL REPORT 2016
Hello Friends,
We are delighted to update you on another transformative year for us here
at the Jefferson Center. We’ve strengthened our existing partnerships and
forged new relationships both in the United States and globally. We’re
expanding our reach, deepening our impact in all our program areas, and
advancing citizens and citizen power as the foundation of our democracy.
In a year that has seen confidence in democratic institutions fray
domestically and abroad, our work highlights the awesome potential
of individuals and communities working together to develop creative
solutions to today’s most complex challenges.
In 2017, we will continue our work on local government reform, media
engagement and innovation, and community-based action on climate
change. We’re proud of the gains we’ve made together in recent years and
can’t thank you enough for your ongoing support and generosity. We will
build on this foundation as we work to strengthen democracy by tapping
into the wisdom and ingenuity of all Americans.
Sincerely,
Kyle Bozentko
Executive Director
LETTER FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
PROGRAM PROGRESS IN 2016
In 2016, we focused on our program partnerships, expanded our impact, and deepened the
Jefferson Center’s role in designing the future of democracy.
CLIMATE & COMMUNITY RESILIENCE
The capstone of the first round of Rural Climate Dialogues brought together participants
and community leaders from Stevens County, Itasca County, and Winona County, along
with staff from Minnesota state agencies and nonprofits, to better understand the
challenges and opportunities for rural communities in addressing the impacts of climate
change. The two-day deliberative session revealed statewide policy priorities to address
climate change, identified gaps in state programs and policies and solutions to better
serve rural communities, and connected rural residents as a way to engender better
coordination for future community resilience work.

WINONA COUNTY CLIMATE DIALOGUE
RURAL CLIMATE DIALOGUES STATE CONVENING
With the Institute for Agriculture and
Trade Policy, we held the third Rural
Climate Dialogue in Southeastern
Minnesota’s Winona County. Eighteen
county residents gathered for three days
to study and discuss extreme weather
and the changing climate and recommend ways to strengthen their community’s
resilience in the face of change.
Thanks to support from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, local organizations
and individuals are implementing pilot projects designed by the Citizens Jury aimed
at increasing resilience. These pilot projects will also serve as models for other
communities around Minnesota.
See more at jefferson-center.org/winona
As a result of the Rural Climate Dialogues, rural residents across the state are taking steps to enhance
community resilience and are giving voice to rural communities often left out of state-level policy
development.
“Many would likely wager that a climate discussion would paralyze rural residents, divide them,
and lead to more finger pointing than hand holding. But not here.”
- Anna Claussen, Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy
ELECTIONS, GOVERNANCE & MEDIA
Our work is changing how local media and government connect to the communities they serve and
reimagines partnerships between once-competing organizations in order to build healthier media
ecosystems and a stronger democracy.
“If journalists are to reconnect with citizens, we need to listen to them negotiate tough issues.
The Jefferson Center’s Citizens Jury model does that.”
- Doug Oplinger, Akron Beacon Journal
As residents of a perennial battleground state, Ohioans are
inundated with political advertisements and soundbite-
driven political coverage each election cycle. In an effort to
help Ohioans have deeper, more meaningful conversations
about politics, we joined with the Akron Beacon Journal to
explore opportunities for local news media to engage their
audiences about the issues and coverage that matter most.
Through Citizens Juries, statewide polling, and community
engagement events, Ohioans created recommendations
focused on shifting the role of news and journalism in their communities.
A coalition of participating news media organizations across the state took these
recommendations to heart and began experimenting with different political coverage
and new audience engagement strategies. To build on the experimentation of Informed
Citizen Akron, we are supporting Ohio news outlets through the Your Voice Ohio
collaborative into 2017 and beyond. Through this effort, we’ll work to reinvigorate
sustainable local journalism by leveraging local news to empower an active, engaged,
and informed citizenry.

INFORMED CITIZEN AKRON & YOUR VOTE OHIO
Amid a contentious election season, we
joined with the University of Minnesota
to engage 50 Twin Cities metro
residents to craft, across party lines,
the top reasons someone might support
each major party presidential candidate. In support of University of Minnesota project
lead Dr. C. Daniel Myers, we assisted in the project design, participant recruitment, and
facilitation instruction for Dr. Myers’ students. Led by the trained student facilitators,
the Twin Cities Election Forum uncovered the values and priorities underpinning
the electoral decisions citizens made and demonstrated the value of deliberation in
increasing mutual understanding between supporters of each candidate.

TWIN CITIES ELECTION FORUM
As a part of a multi-year Operations and Sustainability Initiative,
Cleveland City Council (Ohio) leadership recognized a need to
deploy a more proactive research and policy making approach to
address constituents’ concerns and promote shared problem solving
throughout the City. We partnered with the Cobalt Group to conduct
interviews of City Council leadership to identify shared challenges,
opportunities, and possibilities for collaboration and innovation
across committees. To that end, we continue working with
committee chairs and research/policy staff in the Clerk of Council’s
Office to establish a metrics-based system for implementing collaborative, citizen-
focused policymaking on behalf of their constituents.
CLEVELAND CITY COUNCIL
In an effort to inform and engage citizens
in advance of a decision to expand nuclear
waste disposal in South Australia, the
newDemocracy Foundation hosted two
Citizens Juries to determine if, and under what circumstances, the South Australian
public might support nuclear waste disposal in the state. We supported this effort by
developing materials for participants and assisting in process design conversations.
The South Australian Department of Premier and Cabinet is incorporating results from
the Citizens Juries as the foundation for a broader engagement process to inform its
decision on the nuclear waste question.
YOUR SAY NUCLEAR
Through research conducted in partnership with the Kettering
Foundation, the Jefferson Center investigated the role of public
deliberation in improving collaboration among organizations with
different missions but shared goals. Drawing from the experience of
our collaboration in Informed Citizen Akron and Your Vote Ohio, the
report highlighted the value of deliberation in defining shared goals,
clarifying roles around those goals, and building greater buy-in among
participating organizations.
USING DELIBERATION TO GUIDE COLLABORATION
PATIENT ENGAGEMENT & PATIENT POLICY
Our patient engagement work has been met by wider institutional support for inclusion in
policy development in addition to the recognition we have received for the unique value
public participation, and Citizens Juries in particular, offer the healthcare field.
Recognized by IAP2 USA and IAP2 International as ‘Research Project of the Year,’
Clearing the Error connected us with researchers at Syracuse University and the Society
to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine to assess the value of deliberation in reducing errors
made during the diagnostic process. We convened citizens in six days of deliberation
to develop patient-focused recommendations for reducing diagnostic error. These
recommendations were subsequently assessed for feasibility and likelihood of impact by
healthcare consumers and physicians.
The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine
is working now to implement the top
recommendations in health systems across
the country, including through training for
clinicians and patient advocates, implementing
and evaluating recommendations through controlled
experiments in clinical settings, and initiating policy
reform in regional healthcare systems to strengthen
patient participation in the diagnostic process.

CLEARING THE ERROR
“Working with the Jefferson Center reaffirmed the value of informed patient perspectives and
provided a versatile model for engaging patients and healthcare consumers.”
- Malcolm Oswald, The University of Manchester
We partnered with University of Manchester’s Health e-Research Centre and Citizens’
Juries c.i.c. to design and facilitate a series of Citizens Juries on the topic of health
data usage and data privacy. Participants discussed the use of NHS data for research
and commercial purposes, and the results from their deliberations were utilized by the
National Health Service’s Information Commissioner and the National Data Guardian to
act as guidelines for future medical data sharing practices in the United Kingdom.
Connected Health Cities, an effort aimed at using data to improve health and spur
economic investment in Northern England, also commissioned two Juries to guide their
data sharing and usage policies for a series of planned and
potential uses of health data throughout the multi-year
initiative.

Jefferson center annual report 2016

  • 2. Hello Friends, We are delighted to update you on another transformative year for us here at the Jefferson Center. We’ve strengthened our existing partnerships and forged new relationships both in the United States and globally. We’re expanding our reach, deepening our impact in all our program areas, and advancing citizens and citizen power as the foundation of our democracy. In a year that has seen confidence in democratic institutions fray domestically and abroad, our work highlights the awesome potential of individuals and communities working together to develop creative solutions to today’s most complex challenges. In 2017, we will continue our work on local government reform, media engagement and innovation, and community-based action on climate change. We’re proud of the gains we’ve made together in recent years and can’t thank you enough for your ongoing support and generosity. We will build on this foundation as we work to strengthen democracy by tapping into the wisdom and ingenuity of all Americans. Sincerely, Kyle Bozentko Executive Director LETTER FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
  • 3. PROGRAM PROGRESS IN 2016 In 2016, we focused on our program partnerships, expanded our impact, and deepened the Jefferson Center’s role in designing the future of democracy. CLIMATE & COMMUNITY RESILIENCE The capstone of the first round of Rural Climate Dialogues brought together participants and community leaders from Stevens County, Itasca County, and Winona County, along with staff from Minnesota state agencies and nonprofits, to better understand the challenges and opportunities for rural communities in addressing the impacts of climate change. The two-day deliberative session revealed statewide policy priorities to address climate change, identified gaps in state programs and policies and solutions to better serve rural communities, and connected rural residents as a way to engender better coordination for future community resilience work. See more at jefferson-center.org/rcd-state-convening WINONA COUNTY CLIMATE DIALOGUE RURAL CLIMATE DIALOGUES STATE CONVENING With the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy, we held the third Rural Climate Dialogue in Southeastern Minnesota’s Winona County. Eighteen county residents gathered for three days to study and discuss extreme weather and the changing climate and recommend ways to strengthen their community’s resilience in the face of change. Thanks to support from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, local organizations and individuals are implementing pilot projects designed by the Citizens Jury aimed at increasing resilience. These pilot projects will also serve as models for other communities around Minnesota. See more at jefferson-center.org/winona As a result of the Rural Climate Dialogues, rural residents across the state are taking steps to enhance community resilience and are giving voice to rural communities often left out of state-level policy development. “Many would likely wager that a climate discussion would paralyze rural residents, divide them, and lead to more finger pointing than hand holding. But not here.” - Anna Claussen, Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy
  • 4. ELECTIONS, GOVERNANCE & MEDIA Our work is changing how local media and government connect to the communities they serve and reimagines partnerships between once-competing organizations in order to build healthier media ecosystems and a stronger democracy. “If journalists are to reconnect with citizens, we need to listen to them negotiate tough issues. The Jefferson Center’s Citizens Jury model does that.” - Doug Oplinger, Akron Beacon Journal As residents of a perennial battleground state, Ohioans are inundated with political advertisements and soundbite- driven political coverage each election cycle. In an effort to help Ohioans have deeper, more meaningful conversations about politics, we joined with the Akron Beacon Journal to explore opportunities for local news media to engage their audiences about the issues and coverage that matter most. Through Citizens Juries, statewide polling, and community engagement events, Ohioans created recommendations focused on shifting the role of news and journalism in their communities. A coalition of participating news media organizations across the state took these recommendations to heart and began experimenting with different political coverage and new audience engagement strategies. To build on the experimentation of Informed Citizen Akron, we are supporting Ohio news outlets through the Your Voice Ohio collaborative into 2017 and beyond. Through this effort, we’ll work to reinvigorate sustainable local journalism by leveraging local news to empower an active, engaged, and informed citizenry. See more at jefferson-center.org/ic-akron INFORMED CITIZEN AKRON & YOUR VOTE OHIO Amid a contentious election season, we joined with the University of Minnesota to engage 50 Twin Cities metro residents to craft, across party lines, the top reasons someone might support each major party presidential candidate. In support of University of Minnesota project lead Dr. C. Daniel Myers, we assisted in the project design, participant recruitment, and facilitation instruction for Dr. Myers’ students. Led by the trained student facilitators, the Twin Cities Election Forum uncovered the values and priorities underpinning the electoral decisions citizens made and demonstrated the value of deliberation in increasing mutual understanding between supporters of each candidate.

  • 5. As a part of a multi-year Operations and Sustainability Initiative, Cleveland City Council (Ohio) leadership recognized a need to deploy a more proactive research and policy making approach to address constituents’ concerns and promote shared problem solving throughout the City. We partnered with the Cobalt Group to conduct interviews of City Council leadership to identify shared challenges, opportunities, and possibilities for collaboration and innovation across committees. To that end, we continue working with committee chairs and research/policy staff in the Clerk of Council’s Office to establish a metrics-based system for implementing collaborative, citizen- focused policymaking on behalf of their constituents. CLEVELAND CITY COUNCIL In an effort to inform and engage citizens in advance of a decision to expand nuclear waste disposal in South Australia, the newDemocracy Foundation hosted two Citizens Juries to determine if, and under what circumstances, the South Australian public might support nuclear waste disposal in the state. We supported this effort by developing materials for participants and assisting in process design conversations. The South Australian Department of Premier and Cabinet is incorporating results from the Citizens Juries as the foundation for a broader engagement process to inform its decision on the nuclear waste question. YOUR SAY NUCLEAR Through research conducted in partnership with the Kettering Foundation, the Jefferson Center investigated the role of public deliberation in improving collaboration among organizations with different missions but shared goals. Drawing from the experience of our collaboration in Informed Citizen Akron and Your Vote Ohio, the report highlighted the value of deliberation in defining shared goals, clarifying roles around those goals, and building greater buy-in among participating organizations. USING DELIBERATION TO GUIDE COLLABORATION
  • 6. PATIENT ENGAGEMENT & PATIENT POLICY Our patient engagement work has been met by wider institutional support for inclusion in policy development in addition to the recognition we have received for the unique value public participation, and Citizens Juries in particular, offer the healthcare field. Recognized by IAP2 USA and IAP2 International as ‘Research Project of the Year,’ Clearing the Error connected us with researchers at Syracuse University and the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine to assess the value of deliberation in reducing errors made during the diagnostic process. We convened citizens in six days of deliberation to develop patient-focused recommendations for reducing diagnostic error. These recommendations were subsequently assessed for feasibility and likelihood of impact by healthcare consumers and physicians. The Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine is working now to implement the top recommendations in health systems across the country, including through training for clinicians and patient advocates, implementing and evaluating recommendations through controlled experiments in clinical settings, and initiating policy reform in regional healthcare systems to strengthen patient participation in the diagnostic process. See more at jefferson-center.org/patient-dx CLEARING THE ERROR “Working with the Jefferson Center reaffirmed the value of informed patient perspectives and provided a versatile model for engaging patients and healthcare consumers.” - Malcolm Oswald, The University of Manchester We partnered with University of Manchester’s Health e-Research Centre and Citizens’ Juries c.i.c. to design and facilitate a series of Citizens Juries on the topic of health data usage and data privacy. Participants discussed the use of NHS data for research and commercial purposes, and the results from their deliberations were utilized by the National Health Service’s Information Commissioner and the National Data Guardian to act as guidelines for future medical data sharing practices in the United Kingdom. Connected Health Cities, an effort aimed at using data to improve health and spur economic investment in Northern England, also commissioned two Juries to guide their data sharing and usage policies for a series of planned and potential uses of health data throughout the multi-year initiative.
