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 for this 3-part interactive online conversation series about the authoritarian threats to our democracy.
Our small-group conversations are designed for collaborative exploration. Our conversations aren’t 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 3-part Zoom series will use small group conversations to explore the ways that authoritarianism is increasingly threatening our democracy. Each date has a separate registration, since each can stand on its own. But each discussion also will build on the previous ones, so please register for as many as you can. The projected topics are:
January 11, at 2PM ET: What would the end of democracy look like? Let’s explore the authoritarian threats to our democracy.
January 18, at 2PM ET: What are the key processes and institutions that we need to have a healthy democracy? What concerns do you have about the capacity of these processes and institutions to resist authoritarianism?
January 25, at 2PM ET: Democracy isn’t just about a form of government, it’s about a way of life in community. How does the rise of authoritarianism affect this broader sense of democracy?
