Danielle Allen: Civic Courage

Watch Danielle Allen at Rural Everywhere

We are pleased to share the recording of a keynote address from Danielle Allen as part of Rural Assembly Everywhere. 

Allen graced the Rural Assembly Everywhere virtual stage in October with her thoughts on democracy, restoring unity, civic courage — and the difficulty of naming the bond between Americans. 

“We have to rediscover what we mean to each other, what it means to have a commitment to one another, even across lines of political difference,” Allen emphasized during her keynote. “And that takes courage.” 

Allen discussed the difficulty of agreeing on how to name the bond that Americans have with one another: is it patriotism? Solidarity? Find out why Allen and her colleagues finally landed upon the phrase “love of country” by watching her address to Rural Assembly Everywhere below.
