Virtual Finding the Founders 2020

Finding the Founders programs explore the themes of equality and freedom through the lens of the American Revolution. The events provide an expanded understanding of Independence Day—one that sees the holiday as both a celebration and an acknowledgment of America’s ongoing struggle to achieve the ideals expressed in the nation’s founding documents.

This year, our Finding the Founder programs are going virtual!
