Distinguished Speakers Series

The Richard Nixon Foundation’s ongoing series of civics-based programming featuring accomplished leaders and bestselling authors.


“I hope the Nixon Library and Birthplace will be different—a vital place of discovery and rediscovery, of investigation, of study, debate and analysis.”

—Richard Nixon

A vital part of the Richard Nixon Foundation’s mission, the Distinguished Speakers Series features in-person and online programs that engage the public with American civics, while fostering discussion and debate.
