Election 2020: What Happened? What’s Ahead?

An Impact Hub Happy Hour to Reflect on the Election, our Democracy, and Our Shared Public Life. *FOR IMPACT HUB MEMBERS ONLY*

Take a moment to reflect on the meaning and significance of the election with your Impact Hub community. The election has revealed issues and themes in our democracy and civic life. What have we noticed? What have we learned? How will the results of the election shape our work and impact our communities?

The informal happy hour will be facilitated by MIchael Zis and Paul Schadewald from Macalester College. Michael and Paul will briefly share what they have observed during the campaigns and their impressions of the election and thoughts on the post-election period. They will then invite a shared conversation about people’s own interpretations of the election and ideas about next steps for individuals and for our shared work as changemakers. We can dig into the specifics of election outcomes. We can also reflect together on broad themes such as civic trust, hope, social justice, sustainability, public work, and collaboration across differences and divides.

To give us a sense of who is planning to attend, please fill out this form with your name and your organization or affiliation and please add one hope and one worry that you have heading into the election. We will use this feedback as starting points for our discussion.
