We are regularly exposed to the message that in a democracy, such as the United States, our voices matter. We are encouraged to vote—to participate in the electoral process—to be civically engaged. But what does that mean in a climate where so many of us express apathy and distrust in the system? In an increasingly polarized democracy, how do we practice true exchange and listening?
We are proud to share with you Why It Matters—a collaboration that joins three strands of robust civic engagement: deep dive discussions, the power of youth, and culture and creativity.
