Democracy Is Not Unity

April 14, 2024 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Rev. Mark Richards, President of Wisconsin UU State Action Network.

After each Presidential election, we hear calls for our nation to unify behind the elected candidate. But unity is not a compelling feature of democracy. Democracy calls for each elector to make thoughtful decisions and to speak the truth as they see it. It creates a structure for rigorous debate so that the voter has a clear understanding of a representative’s stand on important issues. We will discuss how our system is working, or not, today. We’ll discuss how UU’s can engage with voters and how Wisconsin UU State Action Network is helping.   wuusan.org

First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee

For over 50 years, the Sunday Forum lecture series has showcased provocative, sometimes controversial, speakers discussing topical issues of the day: politics, the environment, health issues, the arts, education, and more. The Sunday Forum is held at 10:00 a.m. September through May. Speakers give a 45-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience. The content of Forum lectures does not necessarily express the viewpoint of First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, but are meant to offer thoughtful topics which our members often pursue further on their own.
