Community starts with a common set of facts. When dishonesty and disinformation have the power to undermine our confidence in the simplest shared truths, how do we sustain the individual trust that underlies a healthy society? Our world needs people who fearlessly pursue and assert facts.

Join us for an evening of delicious food, inspiring ideas, and a special conversation with former US Attorney Preet Bharara. Come together with your Town Hall community to honor the importance of truth and the people who declare it.

Featured Speaker

Preet Bharara served as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 2009 to 2017. The New York Times has called him one of “the nation’s most aggressive and outspoken prosecutors of public corruption and Wall Street crime.” During his tenure, the office prosecuted nearly 100 Wall Street executives, even as it conducted terrorism prosecutions, civil rights cases, and public corruption investigations against Democratic and Republican officials. Since 2017 Bharara has been a Distinguished Scholar in Residence at NYU School of Law; served as a Senior Legal Analyst on CNN; and hosted a popular podcast about criminal justice called “Stay Tuned with Preet.”
