Ezra Zilkha Policy 2020 Event Series

For thirty-five years, Ezra Zilkha served as a valued Trustee and generous benefactor of the Brookings Institution. In celebration of his incredible life of leadership and service, Brookings was honored to host the Ezra Zilkha Policy 2020 Event Series.  

The series aimed to advance a core democratic value—engaging voters and building community in a meaningful conversation around a common set of issues that touch people’s everyday lives. Events provided Americans with fact-based analysis during a tumultuous year and ahead of an important election in which our social contract seemed extraordinarily strained.
