Our Vulnerable Democracy: Past, Present, and Future – Session Three
Virtual Attendance via Zoom
Session Three: Democracy Dialogue facilitated by Dr. Jennifer Gunter
According to Vann R. Newkirk in The Experiment podcast, democracy, “is entirely contingent upon not just laws, but the interpretation of laws, and also contingent upon certain actors’ willingness to abide by laws and to uphold norms. That is, you know, a lot of what we think democracy is, is fairy dust.”
This session will allow participants to engage in dialogue with one another to investigate the meaning of democracy and how we might work to protect this fragile concept. This will all be conducted in a space where all are welcome as we begin our journey towards being a more inclusive and welcoming community. To this end, please be prepared to use your camera function so that we can better connect with each other.
