Event description
Join us as we cap off the Foundation’s centennial year with a keynote and conversation with New York Times columnist David Brooks!

About this Event

We live in an age of fragmentation and division. How do we become the sort of people who can build trust where there is distrust? How can we connect and offer care across race and other differences? How can we learn to deeply know and respect other people, and be deeply known?

Please join us to hear New York Times columnist David Brooks address these critical community questions, capping off the Foundation’s year-long centennial celebration.

Doors open at 5:30 PM, and the program begins at 6:30 PM. This event is free to the public, but registration is required.
