Civil Society Fellows

2023 Fellows

These 22 Fellows, selected from a pool of over 180 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, all between the ages of 25 and 50, with a foundation to work toward a more civil society and discourse. The Class of 2023 reflects a diverse mosaic representing a broad geographical, political and ideological swath of the United States.
