Virtual Event: Restoring Confidence in Our Democracy (Jan. 12 at 4 p.m.)

Political rivals and close collaborators, Presidents Carter and Ford, held a shared understanding of the sanctity of our democratic systems. In the spirit of this relationship, The Carter Center, Ford School, and the Ford Presidential Foundation are hosting a discussion with former U.S. Representatives Andy Levin and Peter Meijer on ways those across the political aisle can work together to buttress voter confidence and highlight how individuals can become a part of the solution.

Democracy has been increasingly contested around the world. A majority of Americans are not satisfied with how democratic systems in the United States are functioning. In a climate of deep partisan antagonism and widespread misinformation, confidence in our elections has been declining for a myriad of reasons. The real-world implications of this moment cannot be overstated.

This event is hosted in partnership with The Carter Center and the Gerald R. Ford Foundation at the University of Michigan Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, with support from U-M Democracy & Debate and the U-M Center for Local, State, Urban Policy (CLOSUP), and media partners at Detroit Public Television (DPTV).
