Delivering Democracy Lecture begins

About the lecture:

Inaugurated in 2014, the annual Delivering Democracy Lecture has become one of the most anticipated events at ASU and in the communities of which the university and the center are a part. The lecture invites us all to consider the nature of democracy and the subtle, explicit, historic and contemporary issues that shape this essential national ideal. The Delivering Democracy Lecture features visionary individuals who challenge the traditional boundaries of democratic ideals and address key challenges that emerge around issues of race and democracy. The CSRD envisions the Delivering Democracy Lecture as a safe and inclusive space that enables us to overcome polarization and division. Join us for a memorable afternoon that provides an invaluable opportunity to enhance our shared understanding of the roots and possibilities of democratic striving.
