Announcing Danielle Allen as our Fall Forum keynote speaker!

We are thrilled to announce that Danielle Allen, a seasoned leader, public policy expert, and distinguished academic and author will be the keynote speaker at our Fall Forum, taking place on October 26 – 27 in Fort Myers, Florida!

Ms. Allen currently works at Harvard University as a professor and is the Director of the Allen Lab for Renovating Democracy at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Ash Center. She is a contributing columnist for The Washington Post and co-Chair of the Commission on the Practice of Democratic Citizenship, which published the bipartisan report, Our Common Purpose: Reinventing American Democracy for the 21st Century.

Her outstanding contributions have garnered national recognition, including the 2020 John W. Kluge Prize for Achievement in the Study of Humanity and a MacArthur Fellowship. Her most recent book, Justice by Means of Democracy, advocates for power-sharing liberalism, a new political philosophy in which all groups fully share power and responsibility across politics, economy and society.

As an experienced thought leader, Ms. Allen will talk to our community foundation audience about how community philanthropy can play a role in bridging impasses and strengthening our democracy.

We are honored to have Danielle Allen as this year’s Fall Forum keynote speaker where her expertise, insights, and passion for democracy, justice and community will inspire attendees.
