Writers Bloc and the Los Angeles World Affairs Council & Town Hall present:

Trust is essential to the foundation of America’s democracy, asserts Pete Buttigieg, the former presidential candidate and South Bend mayor. Yet, in a century warped by terrorism, financial collapse, Trumpist populism, systemic racism, and now a global pandemic, trust has been squandered, sacrificed, abused, stolen, or never properly built in the first place. Interweaving history, political philosophy, and affecting passages of memoir, Buttigieg provides an impassioned account of a threefold crisis of trust: in our institutions, in each other, and in the American project itself. With the internet and partisan television networks acting as accelerants, Americans jettison any sense of shared reality. Buttigieg contends that our success, or failure, at confronting the greatest challenges of the decade―racial and economic justice, pandemic resilience, and climate action―will rest on whether we can effectively cultivate, deepen, and, where necessary, repair the networks of trust that are now endangered, or for so many, have never even existed.

The conversation will be moderated by broadcast journalist Judy Woodruff, anchor and managing editor of the PBS NewsHour. She has covered politics and other news for five decades at NBC, CNN and PBS.
