This roundtable discussion centered on the Academy’s newly launched Commission on the Practice of Democratic Citizenship, which is charged with developing a plan of action for promoting the values, behaviors, and skills needed for effective citizenship and civic participation in a 21st-century democracy. At this meeting, commission cochairs Danielle Allen (Harvard University) and Stephen Heintz (Rockefeller Brothers Fund) described the work underway and invited feedback from members.
