Doing Democracy Right
Come hear stories from communities across the U.S. and beyond that are recognizing a third way to “do democracy”—creatively, inclusively, and with authentic engagement. Susan Clark, co-author of the acclaimed book, Slow Democracy,hosts the fourth program in the series, Localize the Economy: Build Resilient Communities, organized by BALE (Building A Local Economy) at the Bethany Church in Randolph this Wed., Apr. 19 starting at 6:30 PM. Slow democracy offers a hopeful, participatory alternative to over-processed partisanship, polarization, and spin. With a future increasingly focused on local food, local energy, and local economies, we’re going to need to improve our skills at local decision-making. The evening program starts with delicious light food from the Black Krim Tavern and is free and open to all (donations welcome). The series is co-sponsored by Local Futures, Sustainable Woodstock, Rural Vermont, Feast & Field Market, Alliance for Vermont Communities and Vermonters for a New Economy. Funded in part by Sustainable Future Fund of the Vermont Community Foundation, Larsen Family Fund, New England Grassroots Environment Fund and Catamount Solar Community Grants.
