Wednesday’s awful events at the U.S. Capitol are antithetical to a healthy, pluralistic democracy. These extremist acts show a deep sickness in our democracy, and it is the mission of the SNF Agora Institute to work with others to restore democratic health. We are also committed to supporting our community through this difficult time, and invite students, faculty, staff, and alumni to bring their questions to experts from Johns Hopkins and elsewhere over the coming days through our “Ask Johns Hopkins Anything” discussion board.
The virtual board will be active through Wednesday, Jan. 13. You can submit your question at any time; in most cases, experts will post their answers within a day’s time. Questions and answers will be public, and though we can’t guarantee that all questions will be answered, moderators will be coordinating with experts to answer as many of your questions as possible.
SNF Agora welcomes a diversity of thought and opinions, however we do ask that your questions remain respectful and on-topic. We reserve the right to delete any questions that are demeaning, harassing/hostile, or derogatory in nature.
