This Is What Democracy Looks Like Speaker Series

Revealing how democracy rises and falls in our communities, this series aims to cut through the tumult and focus our attention on the fundamental questions of government for all.

Lectures will be offered digitally and in person following COVID-19 regulations (September will be digital only). If it becomes necessary to switch to a digital-only format, we will notify you as the lecture date approaches. The ticket price will remain the same for digital or in person experiences.
