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, November 3rd, from 2 – 3:15 PM ET for the second of 3 discussions in this series to discuss how we participate in our democracy. In this second session we’ll ask participants to explore what makes it difficult for people to be free and equal members of our democracy. How might we expand our view of who is being excluded from our democracy? How do various forces exclude people and how does this affect our democracy?

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.
