PAST EVENT Thursday August 6 2020

What do young progressives believe? In the popular vernacular, they are described as “liberals” or “leftists,” but these familiar labels obscure what is novel about the ideology many young activists are trying to advance in our universities, cultural institutions, media outlets, and even corporations. On issues of race, diversity, gender, and sexual expression these activists have made a clean break with their liberal forebearers.

Join our panel of experts – MI fellow and City Journal contributing editor, Coleman Hughes; New York Times opinion columnist, Ross Douthat; and columnist for Tablet Magazine, Wesley Yang – to discuss the “Successor Ideology” that is quickly becoming a major force in our national life. How is it that the Civil Rights ideal of a color-blind society was supplanted by calls for proactive anti-racism? Why do many colleges and universities feel comfortable dispensing with due process for sexual assault accusations? Do corporations have a duty to protect their employees from political opinions that make them feel unsafe?

In many ways, the intellectual terrain of our political debates and cultural life is unmapped. We hope that you will join our panel with some of the sharpest minds currently trying to make sense of our new reality.
