How Can We Save Our Democracy? Religion and Politics in an Uncertain World

Increase of xenophobia and racism, threats to freedom of the press, anti-climate change policies—it is clear that we are living in a radically uncertain world. How can we save our democracy in times like these? Meadville Lombard's core faculty will share concepts and practical skills to build resilient democracy and stronger community.

Dr. Mike Hogue, Professor of Theology, Ethics, and Philosophy of Religion, is the keynote speaker. He will speak from his new book, American Immanence: Democracy for an Uncertain World (read Dr. Hogue's introduction), which calls for building democratic communities of responsibility, resistance, and resilience. His book will be available for purchase at the event.

Lunch is included. Please indicate any special dietary needs at checkout.

Suggested ticket price is $30 per person to help defray the expenses of this event. But in the spirit of building a strong, resilient community, we ask you to set your own ticket price: if you can give more to help those who cannot at this time, we encourage you to do so. Minimum is $1 to register.

Registration closes on Monday, October 1, 2018.

This event is co-sponsored by Meadville Lombard and the Unitarian Church of Evanston.
