America at the Crossroads: What we can learn from abroad


Monday, March 22, 2021, 12:00pm to 1:00pm



The United States is facing a range of crises that threaten the very foundation of American democracy, from deepening identity-based polarization, the erosion of democratic norms and institutions, to centuries of systemic discrimination and harm that need to be addressed and revealed in order to move forward as a nation. The United States stands to benefit from the rich experience of nations that have navigated similar challenges in their history. This presentation will consider what we can learn at this defining moment as a nation.
