Date / Time
May 7, 2022
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
America needs a roadmap for building a diverse democracy: enter Eboo Patel (former faith advisor to President Obama) and Yascha Mounk (leading expert on the crisis of liberal democracy), here with their thoughts on where to start. At Chicago Humanities Festival, Patel (“We Need To Build”) and Mounk (“The Great Experiment”) will discuss why democracy has become so fragile here and around the world, and their vision for a better, more inclusive way forward. This conversation is moderated by Zeenat Rahman (Executive Director of Institute of Politics at the University of Chicago) and is a must-attend event for anyone eager to learn about the state of our democracy and what they can do to fix it.
This program is generously underwritten by Bill and Penny Obenshain and presented in partnership with The Institute of Politics at The University of Chicago.
