Special: Deliberate Democracy, a RadioACTive Town Hall at The Marmalade

In time for the beginning of a big election year RadioACTive interrupted the regularly scheduled program to bring you Deliberate Democracy, a RadioACTive Town Hall recorded Nov. 14th 2019, at The Marmalade Branch of the Salt Lake City Public Library. Moderated by RadioACTive's Billy Palmer, the panel included:

  • Former Utah Rep. Rebecca Chavez-Houck. She now leads the non-partisan group Better Boundaries, which ran the successful – so far – ballot initiative for an independent redistricting commission. She’s also an advocate for RCV, or ranked choice voting
  • Chase Thomas, Executive Director at Alliance for a Better Utah, a nonprofit that holds politicians accountable and advocates for progressive policies that make Utah an even better place
  • Marcie Young Cancio, Salt Lake Community College, Assistant Professor, Media Studies & Journalism. Fan of truth, democracy and fun facts, as her Twitter feed — @MarcieSLC — reads. A graduate of Utah State University and Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.
