[Correction highlighted below.]

Wow. The new year is sure off to some kind of start! We are following events at the national level with interest and concern, and we're talking about what it all could mean for democracy here in the League of Women Voters – Downeast.

Coming up this Friday, January 15, at 4:00, you can join us for the next installment of the Democracy Forum.

Searching for Common Ground across the Political Divide

We’ll talk about the political divide in the aftermath of the 2020 general election. Do we share any common ground? What happened at “America in One Room?” What lessons can we learn about American democracy and its future? How can we shape our democratic institutions to foster more deliberation? What lessons can we learn about engaging in deliberation everyday?  

Special Guests: 

  • Larry DiamondSenior Fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Professor, by courtesy, of Political Science and Sociology
  • James Fishkin, Janet M Peck Chair of International Communication, Professor of Political Science (by courtesy), and Director of the Center for Deliberative Democracy.
  • Steve Wessler, Maine human rights educator, trainer, and advocate specializing in conflict resolution

This new episode will be pre-recorded; no listener calls will be taken. Comments and questions may be emailed to news@weru.org with Democracy Forum on the subject line.
