Recent events have placed American democracy in a precarious position in need of defending. Over the last two years, we have watched as many Americans have lost trust in our elections, government, public institutions, and even in each other. We invite you to join a panel of experts and practitioners to discuss the survival of democracy in America and elsewhere.
NationSwell will be joined by Nate Lubin, founder of Fellow Americans, and Nick Penniman, founder of Issue One, for a discussion tackling questions of how to rebuild that lost trust. This participatory event will examine the forces within our politics that are at the root of this predicament — from negative advertising to widespread election myths — as participants delve into the complexities of these and other issues that are chipping away at our democracy.
This event is open to all Council members, especially those with an interest in advancing our democracy and bridging divides.
NationSwell’s events and experiences are designed to bring together diverse, purpose-driven leaders and organizations for learning, inspiration, relationship-building, and societal impact.
