COVID-19 and the fallout from the 2020 election have exposed the fragility of American democratic institutions and the importance of rebuilding the nation’s civic culture. Should there be a universal expectation of national service for youth? What role should national service play in repairing American democracy and in helping the nation emerge from the pandemic? The conversation examines how service can bring Americans out of their political bubbles and mend some of the inequities exposed by COVID-19. In collaboration with Service Year Alliance.
