Our 2020–21 Consider This conversation series is all about democracy and civic engagement—how it works, who gets to participate, and the threats it faces. On February 16, join us for a conversation with Hahrie Han, director of the SNF Agora Institute at Johns Hopkins University. Han studies organizing, movements, civic engagement, and democracy, and we'll talk about how groups who have historically faced systemic barriers to democratic participation become engaged in activism and build political power.
The conversation will take place starting at 5:00 p.m. Pacific on Tuesday, February 16, via Zoom and YouTube. To join us and other viewers in our virtual lobby for post-talk conversation, please RSVP here. If you'd rather just watch live, you can do so on this page or on YouTube. Recordings of the program will be available on February 17.
Hahrie Han is the inaugural director of the SNF Agora Institute, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Professor of Political Science, and Faculty Director of the P3 Research Lab at Johns Hopkins University. She specializes in the study of organizing, movements, civic engagement, and democracy. Her newest book is Prisms of the People: Power and Organizing in 21st Century America.
