Some conversations just need to happen.

Join us for a series of virtual community discussions inspired by the legacy of the US Constitution and the themes behind our free exhibition We the People: The Radical Notion of Democracy. Become part of the conversation, share your thoughts on constitutional issues that affect us all, and hear from thought leaders in civic organizations from across the nation.

This month, we’re partnering with the American Enterprise Institute to explore the role of Congress in maintaining democracy—and what that means today. We’ll dive into the history of Congress, how it’s played a role in promoting pluralism against autocracy, and what role it can and should play in our time.

Free, tickets required. Reserve your spot online or with Guest Services at (479) 657-2335 today.
Once registered, you’ll receive an email with information about the event and the Zoom link for your convenience.

Presented in partnership with the American Enterprise Institute.
