FCCP and PACE members met to explore key post-election questions and to have an in-depth conversation on the state of our democracy. A few of the core questions we explored together included:

  • What does the outcome of the presidential election mean for philanthropy concerned with civic and democratic practices?
  • What should we know about the political environment, where public sentiment is, and what this election means for civic engagement and the state of democracy?
  • What do we hope for in a relationship with the incoming administration? What do we hope they will know, consider, and prioritize in the field of civic engagement?
