Join the Conversation with Fellow Americans on April 21st or 23rd
We at the Interactivity Foundation are excited to be an America Talks 2022 partner and we want to invite YOU to participate! America Talks invites Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs to connect one-on-one, or in small groups, for face-to-face online conversations. The event begins with a livestream that will welcome you and thousands of fellow Americans and will provide you all you need to know to have a successful conversation. This year, America Talks will share out ideas and results from the conversations with members of Congress. The health of our democracy depends on our willingness as Americans both to speak up and to listen to one another. Ready to join the conversation? Sign up for a session on April 21 or 23 at this link.
And Join Us to Explore the Meaning of Freedom for the National Week of Conversation
America Talks kicks off the National Week of Conversation, April 24-30, a week of dialogue and discussion opportunities. We hope you’ll also register for our National Week of Conversation offering–an exploratory conversation about the Freedom of Speech on April 27 at 1pm EDT. This is the first of our four-part series where we explore Four Freedoms: The Spirit of Democracy Today & Tomorrow.
In this series, we’ll use visual art to spark our conversations–namely Norman Rockwell’s paintings of the Four Freedoms (formulated by FDR as human rights of Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear), and artist Maggie Meiners’ contemporary take on what these images might look like today. The four conversations are meant to build on each other, so we hope you’ll sign up and take part in all of them. But each one is meant to stand on its own, so don’t worry if you can’t make them all. You can read more about them and register here.
