P&P Live! Pete Buttigieg – Trust - in conversation with Michel Martin

Upcoming Event
Monday, October 5, 2020 - 8:00pm

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. And now, more so than ever before, Americans must work side by side to reckon with the monumental challenges posed by our present moment.

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.

Pete Buttigieg, born in Indiana in 1982, is former mayor of South Bend and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate. A Rhodes Scholar and Navy veteran, Buttigieg was educated at Harvard and Oxford. He and his husband, Chasten Buttigieg, live in South Bend, Indiana.

Buttigieg will be in conversation with Michel Martin, Emmy-winning journalist and the weekend host of All Things Considered on NPR.

ASL interpretation will be provided for this event.
