Ashley Beard-Fosnow, American Public Square

Ashley Beard-Fosnow serves as the Executive Director of American Public Square. American Public Square is a nonpartisan nonprofit that seeks to change the tone and quality of public discourse. They organize programs that feature expert panelists and audience members with opposing views talking to each other, civilly, about controversial topics. Though these discussions may not always change minds, everyone walks away with a better understanding of the other side, a key step toward respect, compromise, and resolution.
