Can American Democracy Survive? An International Perspective

Please join the League of Women Voters of Piedmont on Wednesday, March 30th, 2022, at 4pm for a fireside chat with Dr. Fiona Hill. She will speak about the current state of American democracy, from both domestic and international points of view.  

Since 2016, foreign meddling in US elections has become a cause for concern.  If we cannot trust our own institutions, what does that mean for our democracy?  What is likely to happen in Ukraine?  Is the crisis likely to spill over into other neighboring countries?  Learn what the current situation means for the international security order we have known since the end of the Cold War and what the implications are for our own democracy.

When: Wednesday, March 30th at 4pm PST (5pm MT | 6pm CT | 7pm ET)
Where: Online via Zoom.
Register for free to receive an email with the Zoom link.

This program will be recorded. You can watch it live or at a later date on our YouTube channel. The second half of the program will be a moderated Q&A session with questions from Zoom participants and YouTube livestream viewers. You will not see the event posted ahead of time on YouTube. It will appear once the program starts at 4pm Pacific Time on March 30th.
