Images From On Point Live At The Harvard Kennedy School

On Thursday, Oct. 3, On Point host Tom Ashbrook moderated the kickoff forum for the Harvard Kennedy School’s Challenges to Democracy series. The forum, titled Inequality vs. Democracy, explored the problems that can arise if democratic societies continue to ignore or avoid fixing large-scale issues of economic inequality.

Tom was joined on stage at the Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics by Harvard University professor Alex Keyssar, Princeton University professor Martin Gilens and Canadian journalist and Liberal Party candidate Chrystia Freeland. A radio broadcast of the event will air at 11 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 4.

Below, we’ve included some images from the event. You can also listen to the forum or watch video of the event.
