A message from
Dan Moulthrop & Kristen Baird Adams

This is an exciting time for your City Club. The Guardians of Free Speech is the most ambitious fundraising initiative in our history, and our new home for civic dialogue at Playhouse Square will allow us to live up to the aspirations we've long had—a place accessible and welcoming to all.

Together, with you, we are writing a remarkable chapter in our community's story. You're a part of every forum, and we're so grateful you'll be a part of our future. Thank you for joining us.
