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, May 3rd at 2 – 3:15 PM ET for the second of 3 discussions in this series to discuss and question our assumptions about the economy.  In this second session we’ll ask participants to explore what assumptions do we have about the economy? When we say the “American dream,” do we mean an economic or democratic dream? Why? And what interests shape our economic system?

You can register for this 2nd session directly on the Eventbrite website.  Please note that there are 3 separate dates for this series, so please scroll down on the Eventbrite website to select the May 3rd date.

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 to explore the broader meanings, concerns, challenges, ideas, and different possibilities for the topic.

This series is convened in partnership with AroundTownDC, and the Diversity Relations Council at Leisure World in Maryland.
