Democracy Unchained: Unprecedented Challenges

The State of American Democracy Project calls us to deepen our conversation on democracy and connect those conversations with meaningful action. Their new video conversation series features leading political figures, such as Van Jones and David Brooks, as they discuss the convergence of threats facing our democracy.

This episode — the second in their ten-part video conversation series — explores what the current pandemic has showed us about the federal capacity to respond to climate change. The growing deterioration of our climate will overwhelm current governance and force us to think as an interconnected whole. It won’t be easy, but structural change in how we maintain order, a viable economy, and distribute resources will determine the future of our country.
