Hope for Democracy—A National Conversation

“Daring Democracy: Igniting Power, Meaning and Connection for the America We Want” is a wonderfully optimistic and idea-packed volume by activist Frances Moore Lappé and organizer-scholar Adam Eichen. It’s one of the denomination-wide Common Reads suggested by the Unitarian Universalist Association. On Sunday, March 11 at 1 PM, we will explore the ideas of Lappé, Eichen and the others they have studied.

They view the Trump presidency as a symptom of a shocking anti-democracy movement and expose the events that drove us to this crisis. But their focus is on solutions: how people from all backgrounds, committed to an array of social-justice causes, are creating hope with what the authors call the “democracy movement.” Copies will be sold at a discounted price of $12 in the lobby between services on the second and fourth Sundays of January and February, and are offered online (Beacon Press.)
