Americans today find themselves in the grip of a global pandemic and climate crisis as well as racial and economic inequality—big problems that can only be addressed through government leadership and citizens' participation. There is an inherent tension in the U.S. Constitution between “the general welfare” and “the blessings of liberty.” In the face of these seemingly opposite propositions, how can American democracy support solutions for such significant problems?
Join the Wisconsin Academy via Zoom for a Roots of Democracy Series discussion with all of our series panelists, who will explore the tension between individual interests and the common good in the American constitution. This online discussion and Q&A is open to the public with advance online registration (Zoom information is provided upon registration).
