As the 2020 election nears, the immediate threats facing our democracy and the challenges that philanthropy must address could not be more clear. How can we ensure that the 2020 electorate is representative of the American public? What do we need to do to make sure that our election system can handle record levels of participation? How can we prevent misinformation and fear mongering from swaying voters?  

At the same time, there can be little doubt that our democracy will remain deeply unhealthy after Election Day regardless of its outcome. How should philanthropy balance the short-term and long-term threats facing our democracy? Join our engaging conversation as we seek to answer these and other questions.

  • Short-term strategies to strengthen democracy
  • Long-term threats and building countervailing power
  • Philanthropy's role in ensuring the health of our democracy for future generations
