Join us for an evening with Dr. Richard Haass, diplomat and renowned policymaker, for a discussion of his most recent book, The Bill of Obligations: The Ten Habits of Good Citizens, a provocative guide to how we must re-envision citizenship if American democracy is to survive. Haass argues that rights alone cannot provide the basis for a functioning, much less flourishing, democracy, and that the cure lies in placing obligations on the same footing as rights. His expert blend of civics, history, and political analysis illuminates how Americans can rediscover and recover the attitudes and behaviors that have contributed so much to this country’s success over the centuries.
