When: Sunday, May 21, 2017, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • 02116 • Boston

Join us for a talk by the former Governor of Massachusetts Michael Dukakis who will answer the question "So What Do Progressives Do in the Era of Trump?"

Michael Dukakis was nominated by President Clinton for a five-year term as a member of the Board of Directors of Amtrak, The National Railroad Passenger Corporation on May 21, 1998 and was confirmed by the Senate on June 25, 1998. He served a full five-year term on the Amtrak Board as Vice-Chairman. 

His research has focused on national health care policy reform and the lessons that national policy makers can learn from state reform efforts. Dukakis and the late U.S. Senator Paul Simon authored a book entitled “How to Get Into Politics-and Why” which is designed to encourage young people to think seriously about politics and public service as a career.

Governor Dukakis, who has devoted his life to the promotion of world peace and democracy, founded Boston Global Forum in 2012 with Harvard Professors Thomas Patterson, John Quelch, and Nguyen Anh Tuan. The Michael Dukakis Leadership Fellow Program was initiated by the Boston Global Forum who identifies the most impactful issues facing the world and provides practical and meaningful solutions to these problems. The Fellowship was established in an effort to engage youth leaders in the furtherance of the Framework, and to enrich their leadership capability in the interest of greater global peace and security.
