She Exist Magazine Confirmed to Cover Obama Foundation’s Democracy Forum in NYC President Obama to Deliver Remarks and Join Emerging Leaders in Conversation

She Exist Magazine is confirmed to attend and cover the Obama Foundation’s first-ever Democracy Forum on November 17 in partnership with Columbia University and the University of Chicago at the Javits Center in New York City.
Against the backdrop of democratic backsliding across the globe, we know that if we want democracy to flourish, we will have to fight for it, we will have to nurture it, and we will have to demonstrate its value, again and again, in improving the lives of ordinary people. The Forum will bring together emerging leaders from across Obama Foundation programs with leading experts and practitioners who are reimagining our institutions and strengthening democratic values across the globe.
The Forum will consist of two days of programming. The first day will be open to press featuring remarks from President Obama, lightning talks by subject matter experts about projects and models that are working, and discussions with established and emerging leaders about the ways in which we all can work towards strengthening and expanding democracy across the globe. The program will include discussions about the four issue areas President Obama has outlined as areas of focus to strengthen democracy: 1) Detoxifying our discourse, 2) Developing models for a more sustainable and inclusive system of capitalism, 3) Revitalizing our institutions so that people believe participation is worth the effort, and 4) Building democratic culture.
The convening will bring together hundreds of emerging leaders from across Obama Foundation programs, including Scholars at Columbia University and the University of Chicago; Leaders from Africa and Asia-Pacific, the inaugural class of 100 Voyager Scholarship recipients, the Obama-Chesky Scholarship for Public Service, and additional program alumni.
On the second day of the Forum, Obama Foundation program participants from across the globe will meet in smaller working groups with democracy experts and President Obama to collaborate and exchange ideas on real-world approaches to the challenges democracy faces today.
