BRATTLEBORO — Rebirthing Democracy: What is it and why do we need to?

Those questions and more will be discussed at the next Brattleboro Democracy Forum at 6 p.m. Monday, May 9, in the community meeting room at Brooks Memorial Library and via Zoom.

Join in with Liam Madden, activist and political change maker, who describes what kinds of structural innovations need to be considered to create a politics capable of meeting our biggest challenges. Rebirthing Democracy focuses not on changing the players, but instead on changing the rules to the game — through innovations to the technology, social processes, and mindsets we use to collectively solve big, complex and scary problems.

Madden is a Marine Corps veteran, an antiwar leader, and an MIT climate solver. He lives in Bellows Falls with his wife Lauren, 3-year-old son June and perhaps by the time of this event, a new son Winn. Madden is a solar energy professional.

The Brattleboro Democracy Forum is produced by We Celebrate Democracy Civil Rights For All, a nonprofit in Marlboro dedicated to positive nonviolent public action for democracy and civil rights for all people.
