ABOUT THE LECTURE:
The word “democracy” is one of the most recognized, venerated, and misunderstood terms in the English language. Its potential, however, has yet to be fully realized because it is routinely distorted, misjudged, and exploited. In order for American democracy to flourish and expand, its origins, evolution, and potency must be interpreted, discussed, and practiced by everyday people, scholars, and visionaries from various walks of life. The Delivering Democracy Lecture provides a platform for innovative, solution-oriented speakers to present their major intellectual and new idea-based statements on participatory democracy.
