What would it look like if democracy were to collapse here in the US? Almost 3/4 of Americans think that American democracy is under threat, and in 2021 the US was listed for the first time as a “backsliding democracy.”
Please join us on January 25th, at 2 PM ET for the third and final of three discussions in this interactive online conversation series. In this final session, we’ll discuss and explore how our democracy isn’t just about a form of government, it’s also about a way of life in community. How does the rise of authoritarianism affect this broader sense of democracy? You can register for this 3rd session directly on the Eventbrite site. Please note that there are 3 separate dates for this series, so please scroll down on the Eventbrite form as needed to select the January 25th date.
These small-group conversations will be facilitated by the Interactivity Foundation, which 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, not debates or arguments. We focus on helping each other to explore the broader meaning of what is happening as it relates to the prospects for democratic societies to thrive. Each of us is an expert about what democracy means for us. Bring your questions, concerns, and thoughts.
This series is convened in partnership with AroundTownDC, and the Diversity Relations Council at Leisure World in Maryland.
