Living Democracy Symposium

A day of learning, engagement, and dialogue.

Join UMD Libraries at this interdisciplinary symposium to examine the actions that all of us can take to preserve our democracy. This one-day symposium will provide opportunities for civic discourse, sharing of new perspectives, and learning about the ways that our collective history, ranging from the Watergate scandal to more contemporary narratives, informs our present and future. Get ready for a day of exciting speakers and panel discussions as we examine the importance of civic engagement, activism, intellectual and academic freedom, and journalism in protecting our democratic way of life.

This is a free event, open to the public. Sign up to be the first to hear about registration and featured speakers: go.umd.edu/updatesldi.

Location: Stamp Student Union

Made possible by a generous gift from the Ilona Modly Hogan Legacy Fund.
