The America We Want to Be: 90-Minute Conversation w/ Optional 30-Minute Q & A with Hosts!
July 3, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
July 3, 2019 @ 7:00 – 9:00 pm ET / 4:00 – 6:00 pm PT (adjust for your time zone)
When the Declaration of Independence was written, not everyone was included in the famous statement about “pursuit of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.” And while the aspirations expressed in our founding documents resonate for some more than others, there are many views regarding the degree to which we have advanced these aspirations for everyone. Some focus more on the great strides we have made; others point to how far we still need to go. Some believe that focusing on the past prevents forward progress; others think we still need to come to terms with our shadow side.
Here is the conversation guide. Some of the questions explored include:
- As you reflect on America’s founding aspirations, what are your thoughts and feelings about our country today?
- What role, if any, do you believe our history should play in America today?
- What does your ideal modern America look like, in terms of its aspirations and past?
You will need a device with a webcam to participate (preferably a computer or tablet rather than a cell phone).
