The City Club of Cleveland and Public Square have a rich and intertwined history. In 1913, the City Club established its first home just off Public Square, a vast public space designed (and re-designed) with democracy in mind. For centuries, powerful speeches and demonstrations were held in the Square—from Stephen Douglas to William McKinley to, most recently, hundreds of protesters during the Republican National Convention.
The Square speaks to us and is a place for us to speak to each other. It's as if, as indicated in a recent New York Times article, "the city of Cleveland was inviting the country and saying simply, Discuss.”
And discuss we shall. Bringing back a tradition that is nearly 100 years old, the City Club will bring conversations of consequence back to the Square. Join us for our first City Club in the Square forum as City Club CEO Dan Moulthrop talks with Ward 3 City of Cleveland Councilman Kerry McCormack.
This is a free event at Public Square.
This forum is sponsored by Albert and Audrey Ratner.
