Strengthening Our Democracy: Taking Action at the National Level — Interactive Virtual Forums Launch on Thursday, May 6, 2021 

May 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

Strengthening Our Democracy: Taking Action at the National, State, and Local Levels — Interactive Virtual Forums Launch on Thursday, May 6, 2021 

The first of a three-part series of interactive forums, hosted by the Arlington Democratic Town Committee, will be held virtually starting on Thursday, May 6, from 7 to 8:30 pm. Featured contributors will include former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, Co-Chair of American Bridge 21st Century.

Questions to be explored include: Where is our nation headed? Which steps can each of us take to protect and strengthen our democracy, and how do we assemble a broad, inclusive coalition that will work to ensure equity and justice for all? And what can the Democratic Party do — amidst a global pandemic, our country’s racial reckoning, the climate crisis, and an increasingly polarized public — to grow its ranks and more effectively combat existing threats to our democratic system?
