Defending and Renewing Our Embattled Democracy

September 19


Sunday, September 19
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm Pacific time zone



The DVC is pleased to welcome Larry Diamond, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI) at Stanford University. He will speak to us on a most critical topic for our time: “Defending and Renewing Our Embattled Democracy.”

Larry Diamond is a noted speaker and leading contemporary scholar in the field of democracy studies, and has served as an advisor to numerous governmental and international organizations. His research focuses on democratic trends, conditions, and policies that defend and advance democracy. His latest book, Ill Winds: Saving Democracy from Russian Rage, Chinese Ambition, and American Complacency, analyzes the challenges confronting liberal democracy in the United States and around the world at this potential “hinge in history,” and offers an agenda for strengthening and defending democracy at home and abroad. His talk will cover key challenges facing our democracy today, and is not one to miss!

Larry Diamond will be introduced by Congressman Ro Khanna, representing our California 17th District.
The Zoom link for the event will be sent when you RSVP.
