Philanthropy and Democracy: Dangerout Liaisons

When: Sunday, November 19 2017 @ 11:00 AM - - 01:00PM
Where: Neutra House
131 Hillview Ave
Los Altos, CA 94022

Our guest in November is Rob Reich, Professor of Political Science at Stanford.

We tend to think of philanthropy as unequivocally good, the direction of private resources toward public benefits for which citizens should respond with gratitude. Yet philanthropy can also be an exercise of power, private power in the public sphere. We invite you to join Stanford’s Rob Reich, faculty director of the Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society and of the Center for Ethics in Society, for a discussion about how philanthropy can both support and subvert democratic governance.

We welcome you to participate by listening and engaging in thoughtful dialogue, with a little live music mixed in. We provide the coffee, tea, and a welcoming space for inquiring minds and open hearts to learn from one another.

The program begins at 11 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m., and we’d love it if you’d stay for a beverage and light refreshments after to share your thoughts.
