Facing History and Ourselves: “What Makes Democracy Work?”

Join Facing History and Ourselves for a community forum in Chicago’s 47th Ward where together we will investigate the question, “What makes democracy work?”

We have all seen, heard, and even felt a heightened sense of division in our country, our state, and among family and friends. Political and social tensions, eroding trust in institutions, and rising incidents of hate and bigotry make this question more essential than ever.

Please join Shawn Healy, Ph.D, Director of the McCormick Foundation’s Democracy Program, and Sarah Shields, Program Associate at Facing History and Ourselves, as they share historical perspectives and moderate a forum focused on ways we can participate in a healthy democracy. This forum is free and open to all members of the community.
