Who is democracy for? In this discussion series, together we will explore who belongs as a full participant in American democracy – and who gets excluded. We’ll explore our questions and concerns about people who are excluded and we’ll discuss how we can respond to the forces that seek to exclude others from fully participating in our democracy.
Please join us online, via Zoom, on Friday, October 20th, from 2 – 3:15 PM ET for the first of 3 discussions in this series to discuss who is being pushed out from our democracy and how and why is this happening. In this first session we’ll ask participants to further explore who is included in our democracy. What does it mean to be fully included in our democracy? Who’s being excluded – and how?

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