The Levy Forum is a speaker series hosted at the Palm Beach Synagogue, sponsored by ACTA board member Paul Levy and ACTA. The goal of these events is to promote the epistemic virtues that ACTA seeks to promote on university campuses across the country, such as curiosity, objectivity, and wisdom. The Levy Forum is dedicated to exploring the most urgent social and political topics of our times in a spirit of fearless inquiry.

Dr. Loury is the Merton P. Stoltz Professor of the Social Sciences in the Department of Economics at Brown University. He is one of the nation’s leading social critics on the topics of racial inequality, the black family, affirmative action, and identity politics. Dr. Loury’s podcast, “The Glenn Show,” is one of the nation’s most vibrant forums for fearless discussion of the urgent issues of our times.
