As stewards of our planet, we understand that the fight against corporate destruction for profit is intricately connected with the broader struggle for a just and authentic democracy. Today, we are thrilled to invite you to a thought-provoking Zoom event titled "Is this Democracy? Federal, State & Local Struggles in 2024," hosted by Move to Amend and Democracy Unlimited.

Event Details:

  • Date: Thursday, March 7
  • Time: 5pm PT, 6pm MT, 7pm CT, 8pm ET
  • Duration: Approximately 90 minutes
  • Platform: Zoom

Democracy and environmentalism share a profound intersectionality, and this event aims to explore that connection. Many of us recognize the 2024 elections as pivotal moments for our democracy, and the rise of authoritarianism, Christian nationalism, and the cult of personality poses direct threats not only to our political system but also to the environment we hold dear.

Authentic democracy goes beyond the act of casting a vote; it involves actively participating in shaping our collective future. By joining Move to Amend and Democracy Unlimited in this crucial dialogue, you'll gain insights into how the promise of democracy intersects with the urgent need for environmental stewardship. Brief presentations by MTA and DU staff, board members, and supporters will be followed by an engaging Q&A session where your questions, comments, and concerns can take center stage.

At the heart of our ecological advocacy is the understanding that a livable world is intricately tied to the health and vibrancy of our democratic institutions. This event provides a unique opportunity to explore the challenges facing both realms and discover how we, as a community, can actively contribute to positive change.
