When Are We US?

An Exploration of Freedom, Civic Responsibility, Overcoming Challenges, and Change

Welcome to When Are We US? - a thought-provoking theme that delves into the fundamental ideals of democracy and the role they play in shaping our society.

Throughout history, people have struggled to define the meaning of freedom, civic responsibility, and what it means to be a part of a community. In this theme, we will explore the challenges that have been faced and overcome as we lean into the ideals of democracy. We will examine how change can be a powerful force for progress and how we can work together to create a more just and equitable society.

We will delve into the following themes:

  • Freedom: What does it mean to be free in a democratic society? How does freedom intersect with civic responsibility?
  • Civic Responsibility: How do we balance individual freedoms with the responsibilities of being a member of a community? What are our obligations to each other as citizens?
  • Overcoming Challenges: How do we as a society overcome the challenges we face? How do we work together to create a better future?
  • Change: How do we understand and navigate change in our society? How do we create meaningful and lasting change in our communities and our nation?

Join us as we explore these themes through a variety of programming and events, including lectures, panel discussions, and interactive exhibits. We invite you to engage in the conversation, ask questions, and share your thoughts on these important issues.

Together, we can work towards a deeper understanding of the ideals of democracy and how we can make them a reality in our society. Thank you for joining us on this journey of exploration and discovery.
