‘America’s Democracy: Making Sense of the Chaos’

After an unusually rancorous presidential election, Washington DC has struggled to find it’s footing as both parties and all three branches of government try to sort out their leadership roles and move the country forward. The philanthropic and non-profit sectors find themselves in the middle of the discussion as government leaders debate the future of the charitable deduction, the purpose of non-profits and the role of foundations in our country.

Join Chris Gates, the Executive Director of PACE-Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement, and former President of the National Civic League, as he provides an update and leads on conversation on the challenge of governing and the pressure of politics in Washington, and what it all might mean for our sector.
