Protecting and Expanding Democracy in New York: How to Faithfully Engage in a Time of Threat and Opportunity
Democracy is under threat in the United States.

West McNeill will lead a presentation and conversation about the state of democracy in New York and how we can take action at the local and state level to strengthen it, opening up political possibilities for greater justice and equity throughout our state.
