Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg

In an America that seems increasingly divided, how can we regain trust in our government and in each other? Pete Buttigieg gained a comprehensive view of American democracy during his time as a candidate for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Now, in his new book Trust: America’s Best Chance, Buttigieg argues that re-building trust as an American ideal is the key to tackling our country’s biggest challenges.

Buttigieg returns to INFORUM to share a vision that urges us to reject our divided present in favor of a future that is more inclusive, conciliatory and trusting. Through this path, he states, American democracy can truly live up to its guiding tenets.
