About Delivering Democracy:

Inaugurated in 2014 by the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy in ASU's College of Integrative Sciences and Arts, Delivering Democracy has become one of the most anticipated annual events at ASU and in the communities of which the university and the center are a part. The program invites us all to consider the nature of democracy and the subtle, explicit, historic and contemporary issues that shape this essential national ideal. Delivering Democracy features visionary individuals who challenge the traditional boundaries of democratic ideals and address key challenges that emerge around issues of race and democracy. The Center envisions Delivering Democracy as a safe and inclusive space that enables us to overcome polarization and division.  

Featured sponsors of Delivering Democracy 2020 are APS, Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church and the Maricopa Community Colleges.
