The COVID-19 Citizen Commission Version 1.0

This is version 1.0 (very early stage) of the citizen commission any feedback is greatly appreciated as we develop future versions.  

The Liberty Bell Challenge 

The Liberty Bell is an iconic symbol of American independence, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In its early years, the Liberty Bell was used to summon lawmakers to legislative sessions and to alert citizens to public meetings and proclamations. We believe that given the right tools and framework, citizens, patients, consumers, healthcare professionals, public servants and politicians, working together can achieve great results addressing the challenges facing our nation.

Why wasn’t the United States better prepared for the novel coronavirus and COVID-19?

Why was the Federal response so ineffective to address the COVID-19 Pandemic?

What can,  we the people, do to address the COVID-19 pandemic? 


As a fellow citizen, I invite you to take part in the COVID-19 Citizen’s Commission. Based on the framework of the Morbidity and Mortality (M & M) Conference used in the medical setting, this endeavor provides citizen-oriented tools so that people can more effectively collaborate and address complex problems.


The COVID- 19 Citizen Commission will examine publicly available information and documents related to the origin, response, and communication of events occurring since the Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) was identified December 2019, in Wuhan, China. When appropriate we will invite relevant stakeholders to participate.


Additionally, we hope to create a framework for dialogue within the public sphere to sustain a conversation for this and other current and future challenges in our national  body politic and more generally the global community. 

The citizen commission framework examines the various stakeholders associated with the epidemic and highlights the potential for citizen action, interest groups, citizen groups, individuals, non-governmental regulators, as well as public officials to impact the COVID 19 pandemic. We review some of the narratives that have driven the efforts to address the COVID 19 challenges and shape the current conversation,  take a deeper dive into the various stakeholders associated with the pandemic contextualized within the larger social, cultural, and political landscape. We develop a comprehensive, action-based agenda for the many facets of the challenge posed by the pandemic.
