We will kick-off our last program before the summer break with an Update from Washington from Congressman Joe Neguse, followed by a talk on Repairing our Democracy from Colorado Attorney General, Phil Weiser.
The post-2020 election revealed a basic challenge to our democratic republic, including a lack of truth-telling and rise in demonization. Both dynamics threaten our ability to function as a democracy where we honor the will of the people. The rising demonization and political polarization threaten our ability to govern ourselves. In his talk, Phil Weiser will discuss how Colorado is a model for our nation, both in repairing our democratic institutions and develop policies based on empathy to serve all Coloradans.
