Saving Liberty and Justice for All: Getting Core Values to Effective Action

Saving Liberty and Justice for All: Getting Core Values to Effective Action

How do we bend the arc of the moral universe and change political discourse in Ohio? If these issues concern you, come to a presentation by acclaimed author and activist, Danielle Allen. Since the 2016 election, Dr. Allen has been working with a variety of activist and academic colleagues to develop methods to forge stronger connections among values, narratives, policy priorities and action strategies. Ohio is slated to be a key testing ground for this exciting and important work. Dr. Allen is a political theorist who has published broadly in democratic theory, political sociology, and the history of political thought. Widely known for her work on justice and citizenship in both ancient Athens and modern America, Allen is the author of The World of Prometheus: The Politics of Punishing in Democratic Athens (2000), Talking to Strangers: Anxieties of Citizenship since Brown v. Broad of Education (2004), Why Plato Wrote (2010), and Our Declaration (2014), and co-editor with Robert Reich of Education, Justice, and Democracy (2013) and with Jennifer Light of From Voice to Influence: Understanding Citizenship in a Digital Age (2015). Hosted by Shaker Heights Democratic Club, Cuyahoga County Progressive Caucus, Cuyahoga County Democratic Party Women's Caucus, Cleveland Stonewall Democrats, Cleveland Action Democrats, Cleveland Heights Democratic Club and South Euclid Democrats.
