Connect in Place: What Does Democracy Require?

March 23, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

American flag

As we begin, however tentatively, to move into a new moment in US political life, calls for unity are often met with skepticism and disdain. But perhaps unity is the wrong measure of democracy anyway. What if instead we ask, Who are our people? Where do we belong? In this moment coming out of the pandemic, how can we think together about expanding the scope of our people and what it means to belong so that we can consider what democracy requires of us and for us in this fraught moment. Join Willamette University professor David Gutterman for this program.
