Throughout 2020, countless voices and interests have vied for our attention, our time, our advocacy, our energy, and our votes. The coronavirus pandemic, racial justice movements, nation-wide elections, and other headline-dominating events have highlighted deep questions we have about our political and social communities.
“The Future of Democracy” is an opportunity to discuss how the events of the past year have shaped our current political community, and to examine how we can create the kind of political community we want moving forward. Small group conversations will be moderated by student, staff, and faculty facilitators trained and certified by the Deliberative Citizenship Initiative.
