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 discussion series about the authoritarian threats to our democracy. Our small-group conversations are designed for collaborative exploration. We will focus not on specific factual details, where few of us can be an expert, but on the broader meaning of what is happening as it relates to the prospects for democratic societies. Each of us is an expert about what democracy means for us. Bring your questions, concerns, and thoughts.

This 3-part Zoom series will explore ideas together in small group conversations. Register for the series and participate in as many of the programs as you can. The possible topics (subject to change) 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?

These small-group conversations will be facilitated by the Interactivity Foundation. The Interactivity Foundation is dedicated to fostering generous and highly participatory conversations where we can help each other consider diverse perspectives, think broadly and deeply about issues, and imagine alternative possibilities for the future.
