In a moment when legacies of structural racism are tearing us apart, how to we begin to see each other’s pain as our own? What happens in a democracy when the public no longer consents to being governed by institutions they perceive as being illegitimate? What mechanisms do the public have to enter into relationships of shared governance that should be the hallmark of any democracy? In a society that is so full of suffering, what is the vision of the new world that we can seek? Join SNF Agora Conversations as we try to understand the nature and causes of the current crisis and explore pathways forward.
