Policymaking Simulations:
Get Informed & Share Your Views with Congress

Policymaking Simulations are an online tool that put citizens in their elected officials’ shoes. They take users through the process of deciding policy — getting briefed, hearing pro and con arguments and coming to conclusions. 

Voice of the People works with the Program for Public Consultation to develop simulations on a wide range of issues facing Congress.
