About Delivering Democracy:

Inaugurated in 2014, Delivering Democracy has become one of the most anticipated annual events at ASU and in the communities of which the university and the center are a part. The program invites us all to consider the nature of democracy and the subtle, explicit, historic and contemporary issues that shape this essential national ideal. Delivering Democracy features visionary individuals who challenge the traditional boundaries of democratic ideals and address key challenges that emerge around issues of race and democracy. The CSRD envisions Delivering Democracy as a safe and inclusive space that enables us to overcome polarization and division. Join us for a memorable afternoon that provides an invaluable opportunity to enhance our shared understanding of the roots and possibilities of democratic striving.
