Our Vulnerable Democracy: Past, Present, and Future – Session Three

May 10

Virtual Program – Our Vulnerable Democracy: Past, Present, and Future

Mondays – April 26, May 3 and May 10

Working with partner organizations, this three-part virtual program series will explore historical connections to recent events in our country that have revealed vulnerabilities in our democratic framework and offer opportunities for discussion and dialog on how we can move forward together.

Session Three: Democracy Dialogue facilitated by:
Dr. Jennifer Gunter, director of the Collaborative on Race at the University of South Carolina
Kabrina Bass, Executive Director of the Midlands Mediation Center
Mon., May 10 at 6:30 p.m. 
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.
