What is the impact of media and technology on the state of American democracy? Join Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), Rep. John Katko (R-NY), former Rep. Steve Israel, journalists, and prominent thought leaders for solutions-oriented conversations about democratic resilience. The summit will seek to elevate discourse from present-day ad hoc policy responses to a broader, long-term approach to safeguard democracy in the midst of historic changes in the media and technology landscape.

At 1:00 PM, TCF President Mark Zuckerman and TCF senior fellow Bart Gellman will keynote the event with a conversation on “Exposing Threats to Democracy.”
