Assemble America is leading a grassroots movement to bring Citizens’ Assemblies to every corner of our nation. What do we want? Real democracy! When do we want it? Now!


The mission of Assemble America is to build unity, ensure liberty, and advance the common good through the establishment of Democracy by Assembly. Conscious of our fraught political moment—and compelled by the fierce urgency of now—we are making haste to bring the promise of Citizens’ Assemblies to the center of our national discourse. To this end, we endeavor to foster and empower a grassroots, non-partisan, participatory movement through initiatives in networking, advocacy, and education. By these local, regional, and national efforts, our movement will bring about not just Citizens’ Assemblies, but the democratic renewal of society: an America of justice, freedom, and prosperity for all.

Geo Stokes

Geo is greatly inspired by the power of Citizens’ Assemblies as a paradigm shift in politics that can fight corruption and restore the American dream. A burgeoning activist, he is deeply concerned by the systemic failure modes crippling our current political modalities. He is focused on building the foundations for an Assembly Movement to sweep the nation.
