Frances Moore Lappé & Adam Eichen: Daring Democracy – Igniting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Want

November 1, 2019 - 9:00am to November 3, 2019 - 5:00pm
Rowe Center, Rowe, MA USA

Frances and Adam invite you to turn your fear into power as you work with others who share your passion for finding solutions to our current crises.

“It’s not the magnitude of a challenge that crushes the human spirit. It’s feeling powerless that does you in. Today, Americans face three intertwining crises: that of the economic system, the political system, and the environment. In this powerful workshop, Frances and Adam will share little-known stories to help you explore how people from all walks of life are contributing to the rising democracy movement. State by state, citizens are working to reverse voter suppression, weaken the influence of big money in politics, and abolish partisan gerrymandering. At the same time, more people are realizing that our economic system only works for the wealthiest Americans, and representatives of youth movements are awakening people to the need for immediate climate action. You can be a part of this! Discover how to embrace democracy as a thrilling, everyday practice — and how to act with a holistic understanding of the three crises and the power you have to contribute to their solutions.
