Mission Statement

The mission of The Right Question Project, Inc. is to make democracy work better for all people on a fundamental level through designing and sharing educational strategies that help people advocate for themselves and participate in a wide range of decision-making processes that affect them. We also foster, support and learn from a network of people around the world who are applying RQP's strategies.


The Right Question Project, Inc (RQP), a small, non-profit organization based in Cambridge, MA, is dedicated to making democracy work better for all people on a fundamental level. We develop simple-to-use educational strategies that help build personal and political advocacy skills and promote greater participation on many different levels in a democratic society. Our educational strategies build on people's ability to think and act for themselves. Organizations, programs and institutions in different fields and communities have used our strategies in many ways, including: parents who have used RQP to support, monitor and advocate for their children's education; workers who have applied RQP to create their own economic development plans; prison inmates' who have used RQP to develop their critical thinking and advocacy skills; and low-income people who have used our strategies to help secure better health care for their families and communities. In the past two years, our educational strategies have also begun to be used as part of pro-democracy efforts in South Africa and Eastern Europe. After nearly a decade of direct training, we are taking what we have learned from our work 'in the field' and are creating educational products, a website, and powerful arguments for how our strategies, methodology, and training practices help to strengthen democracy, from the bottom up.
