‘Renewal’ at All Levels — The Personal to the Global. An Urgent Conversation with Two Leaders of the Movement
The Our Towns Civic Foundation and Jefferson Educational Society present a discussion featuring two people who have thought and done most to address the emergencies of this moment.
Anne-Marie Slaughter — best-selling author, former Princeton dean and State Department senior official, CEO of New America — has written a candid and riveting brand-new book. It is called “Renewal,” and it explores the personal, institutional, political, and ethical challenges of facing failures, and opportunities.
Josh Fryday — Navy veteran, lawyer, former mayor, and now first-ever California cabinet member as the state’s Chief Service Officer. For Climate Week, he has an ambitious state model of citizen action, to scale to the national level.
Leading them in conversation is James Fallows, co-author of “Our Towns,” co-founder of Our Towns Civic Foundation, and author of “Breaking the News” on Substack.
