Oregon Humanities’ 2020–21 Consider This conversation series is all about democracy and civic engagement—how it works, who gets to participate, and how it can fail. Join us on Tuesday, January 19 at 5 pm for a conversation with Emma Green, a staff writer at The Atlantic who covers politics, policy, and religion. We’ll talk about how faith overlaps with voting, running for office, volunteering, and other ways people interact with democracy in the United States.

To join other viewers in a virtual lobby for post-talk conversation, please RSVP here. If you’d rather just watch live, you can do so on this page. Recordings of the program will be available on January 20.

In 2019, Emma Green won three first-place awards from the Religion News Association, and America magazine and the Saint Thomas More Catholic Chapel and Center at Yale recently named her the laureate of the 2020 George W. Hunt, S.J., Prize for Excellence in Journalism, Arts, & Letters. Emma has spoken at universities across the U.S., and her work has appeared in The New York TimesThe Washington Post, and NPR. She lives in New York City.
