This call highlighted the great work that is happening in civic participation and arts and culture, and shared opportunities to get involved. It addressed elections, but even more so the ongoing work that is happening to strengthen our democracy. The call featured presenters from across the country who are working to protect voting rights and make sure that those who have been historically disconnected from decisionmaking have opportunities to participate. Artists and media makers who are using their creativity to increase inclusion and participation also shared their work. And we heard from people who are working on what happens after the election to make sure that democracy can thrive in our daily lives.
