What is the future of American Democracy? Will moneyed-interests always be in control? How can citizens guide our democracy most effectively? Prof. Jeffrey Green, Director of the Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy at the University of Pennsylvania visits the Philadelphia Ethical Society to try to answer these questions. The 2016 election challenged the faith held by many progressives in the United States. Green’s newest book, The Shadow of Unfairness, examines the role socio-economic status has taken in shaping the process of democracy in our country. Leader of the Ethical Society, Hugh Taft-Morales, interviews Prof. Green and opens the floor to Q & A.
