The John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at the Institute of Politics is Harvard's premier arena for political speech, discussion and debate.

Manhattan Institute Senior Fellow, Oren Cass, American Enterprise Institute columnist and blogger, James Pethokoukis, and Conservative Reform Network Senior Advisor, April Ponnuru joined Institute of Politics Fellow and Co-Founder of Echelon Insights, Kristen Soltis Anderson for a discussion on the future of the American conservative agenda. The speakers addressed topics ranging from the future of the Affordable Care Act and healthcare policy to the ability of the republicans to follow through on platform issues like tax cuts, to Donald Trump’s power over environmental regulations and the EPA.

The forum regularly hosts heads of state, leaders in politics, government, business, labor and the media. A living memorial to President John F. Kennedy, the Institute's mission is to unite and engage students, particularly undergraduates, with academics, politicians, activists, and policy makers on a non-partisan basis to inspire them to consider careers in politics.
