Securing Our Democracy: The Work Ahead
A Conference & Retreat to Explore Challenges and Possibilities
We the people in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity...”
We take the theme for our retreat from the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution, especially the phrase, “and secure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.” Many people are surprised and shocked by both the conduct and policies enacted and overturned by our leaders at the highest levels. At this time, asking the question, “What does it mean to secure our democracy?” is essential. The second question is, of course, “What can we do?”
Please join us in this three-day retreat during this historic juncture in our national story which demands that we all re-engage in securing our democracy. Whether you are an educator, researcher, non-profit administrator, social service worker, social or environmental activist, green business entrepreneur, therapist, etc., now is the time to listen to one another, face our challenges together, and collaborate in service of the common good.
