Faith or Fear with Trygve Olson


Location: Online

With the midterm elections behind us and holidays approaching, you might be wondering:

  • What can I do now to protect democracy?
  • How am I going to survive the holidays if politics come up?

We’ve got you covered with a special event featuring experts on addressing political extremism from the dinner table to the halls of Congress. We hope you can join us for this post-election discussion about extremism in American politics and how to fight it in your own life.

Special guest Trygve Olson has spent years as a top Republican strategist. He’s also spent two decades training thousands of pro-democracy activists in more than 40 countries around the world – places struggling to shake off autocrats or build brand new democracies. Now, he says, it’s Americans who need to learn how to stop democratic backsliding – right here at home. Join us for a crash course on keeping our nation in the hands of the people.

He’ll be joined by Jillian Youngblood from Civic Genius and Brandyn Keating from YOUnify to share insights from behavioral science and community-based problem solving.
