The Forward’s Batya Ungar-Sargon chosen for ADL and Aspen Institute Civil Society Fellowship

Opinion editor Batya Ungar-Sargon has been selected for the 2021 ADL and Aspen Institute Civil Society Fellowship.

Launched in 2019, the Fellowship gives the next generation of community leaders and problem-solvers the opportunity to refine and hone their leadership skills while building relationships across the issue areas and movements from which they come.

Ungar-Sargon is one of the fellows included in two new classes — one for 2020, one for 2021 — selected from a pool of approximately 200 nominees from across the country. The diverse group includes conservatives and liberals, and is made up of mayors, chiefs of police, educators, entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, journalists, lawyers, poets, athletes and activists.

This election year has highlighted the country’s polarization, and both the Forward and the Civil Society Fellowship believe civil discourse is needed now more than ever. Ungar-Sargon and the Forward’s Opinion section are committed to finding nuance in debate, sharing new perspectives on essential issues and lifting up the voices of those who are often sidelined from the conversation.
