Ben Franklin Circles

The Ben Franklin Circles (BFC) is a collaborative project of 92nd Street Y (92Y), the Hoover Institution, and Citizen University. BFC reflects a shared commitment to fostering civic participation, open dialogue, and ethics-based leadership.

The Ben Franklin Circles is a bold initiative that brings people together to ask two questions: how can we improve ourselves? How can we improve our world?
