Five Reasons Why You Should Attend the Denver Democracy Summit

By | 2022-01-31T19:54:16+00:00 January 31st, 2022|Member News|

Democracy and democratic governance in the U.S. and around the world face extraordinary challenges. Hyper-partisanship, growing inequality, and technology’s disruption of media and economies have emerged as deep threats to democratic ideals alongside other dilemmas like the capacity of democratic institutions to tackle the problems posed by climate change and the ongoing debate of how to best guarantee free and fair elections. The 2022 Denver Democracy Summit convened by Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver is a nonpartisan gathering of citizens, leaders, media and thinkers in government, nonprofit, business, and academia who are dedicated to protecting and promoting democratic ideals. This year’s Summit, Confronting Democracy’s Dilemmas, will take a closer look at the tensions inherent to democratic institutions and ideals that have led to some of the most vexing challenges we face today. Here are five reasons why you should attend the 2022 Denver Democracy Summit, as quoted by speakers from last year’s inaugural event.
