Susan Clark, co-author (with Woden Teachout) of Slow Democracy: Rediscovering Community, Bringing Decision Making Back Home will speak about the ideas in the book and lead a small-group, interactive discussions. Open to all; no reservation required. Copies of Slow Democracy will be available for sale and Susan Clark will sign books after the event.
Just as slow food encourages chefs and eaters to become more intimately involved with the production of local food, and slow money helps us become more engaged with our local economy, slow democracy encourages us to govern ourselves locally with processes that are inclusive, deliberative, and citizen powered. In Slow Democracy, community leader Susan Clark and democracy scholar Woden Teachout document the range of ways that citizens around the country are breathing new life into participatory democracy in their communities.
