Civil Society Fellows

2021 Fellows

These Fellows, selected from a pool of approximately 200 nominees from across the country, are proven leaders with a broad array of concerns who have reached an inflection point in their lives where they are ready to apply their talent and skills to build a more civil society. A more civil society requires the participation and mutual understanding of all, regardless of political labels. The Fellowship is intended to ground this group of Fellows with a foundation to work toward a more civil society and discourse. The Class of 2021 reflects a diverse mosaic representing a broad geographical, political and ideological swath of the United States.
