Description

Join us for a special discussion with three of country’s leading voices on the state of our democracy. Just one year out from the 2020 Elections, the conversation will focus on the status of today’s political parties, what we can expect in the future, and how Americans are truly feeling about our nation.

The timely conversation takes place at a time where many Americans feel the nation is falling short in realizing our potential. In a recent study published in The New York Times, almost all respondents said that the U.S. performed well on some of the most important measures of democracy: free and fair elections, freedom of speech and judicial limits on executive power. However, fewer than two-thirds of respondents said other important standards of democracy were being met – for example, no interference with the press and respect for judicial independence by elected branches of government. And a minority said the United States was succeeding at equal rights or basic behavioral norms of civil discourse.

The three leaders will engage in a spirited conversation with Professor Philip Eliasoph and Dean Richard Greenwald—and with you.
