The Economy & Democracy in America – 1st of 3 sessions in a community conversation series

April 19, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm EDT

Free
Economy and Democracy - Conversation Series

How do you see the relationship between our economic system and the health of our democracy? What are the purposes and values that shape our economic system – and how do these mesh with the purposes and values of our democracy?

Please join us online, via Zoom, on Wednesday, April 19, at 2 – 3:15 PM ET for the first of 3 discussions in this series to discuss concerns and questions about the relationship between the economy and our democracy. In this first session we’ll ask participants to explore who does the economy serve–and why? What might be the consequences for democracy of rising inequality and insecurity? And what if these consequences are by design–and if so, why?

You can register for this first session by completing the Eventbrite form directly below. Please note that there are 3 separate dates for this series, and we encourage you to register for all the dates:  scroll down the form as needed to select and register for the 2nd and 3rd dates as well if your schedule allows.


These small-group conversations will be facilitated by the Interactivity Foundation. The Interactivity Foundation is dedicated to fostering generous and highly participatory conversations where we can help each other consider diverse perspectives, think broadly and deeply about issues, and imagine alternative possibilities for the future. Our small-group conversations are designed for collaborative exploration. They are not debates or arguments. We focus on helping each other explore the broader meanings, concerns, challenges, ideas, and different possibilities for the topic.
