The 18th Annual Herbert G. Klein Lecture

Join former San Diego Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-CA) and New York Times contributor and podcaster Jane Coaston for a thought-provoking discussion about the pervasive sentiment that our political landscape is stagnating as the bipartisan divide continues to widen. These esteemed speakers will discuss where this perception originated, why we are experiencing these challenges, and critically, how we move forward as a nation. Hear about actionable solutions to reignite progress and restore faith in our democratic processes.

Join us in-person at the beautiful La Jolla Country Club for a champagne brunch with an ocean view followed by a conversation between our esteemed speakers.
