TIKKUN OLAM AT CBI

On Tyranny: Community Book Discussion

Sunday, March 21, 7:00 pm on Zoom

The Trump presidency and its aftermath present a serious threat to our democracy and political institutions.

Professor Timothy Snyder anticipated these threats and the greater danger of tyranny in his 2017 book, On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century. Snyder presents twenty warning signs for the rise of tyranny and suggests preventative actions we can take.

Join us as we examine the place of Snyder’s book in today’s political landscape, discuss his warnings and explore what we can do to protect our democracy going forward.
