From the Document: "On December 9-10, the United States is to convene a virtual 'Summit for Democracy [hyperlink],' with participation by leaders of foreign governments, civil society organizations, and the private sector. Leading up to the event, the U.S. government is hosting side events [hyperlink], including inter-parliamentary sessions facilitated by the House Democracy Partnership [hyperlink]. Roughly a year after the virtual Summit, the Biden Administration anticipates a second, in-person Summit to follow up on commitments made at the initial meeting. U.S. commitments made at the Summit could prompt congressional oversight and/or legislation and affect appropriations decisions."
