Try a Policymaking Simulation

Policymaking Simulations put you in your elected officials’ shoes by simulating the process they go through in making policy decisions – getting briefed, hearing arguments, coming to decisions – using an online instrument called a “policymaking simulation.” VOP has worked with the Program for Public Consultation to develop simulations on the following issues. Give one a try!

After taking the policymaking simulation, you’ll have the opportunity to make your voice heard by sending your recommendations to your member(s) of Congress. You will have the opportunity to add a personal note to your representative, or share more details about your recommendations, if you wish.
