April: Why Democracy?

April 24, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

A chance for our community to talk about the history and present status of democracy

Almost a hundred years ago, our predecessor, the Public Forum Movement, hosted an event with the title “Are We Done with Democracy?”. It was a historical moment in which many were reassessing the American democratic tradition. Communism, fascism, and other ideologies presented live alternatives to liberal democracy. It is always a question worth contemplating for Americans. Why democracy? What are the benefits and risks of our system? What kind of culture is necessary for democracy to work well?

Speaker: Will Floersheim, ISD 316 Social Studies Teacher (World History, Economics, and Government)
