John Kerry will sit in conversation with Randall Morton, Progressive Forum president, to highlight stories behind his memoir, recounting a remarkable 50 years in public service – from decorated Vietnam veteran, to five-term U.S. senator, 2004 Democratic presidential nominee, and the 68th Secretary of State – during some of the most important events in our shared history.


A Yale graduate, Kerry enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1966, serving valiantly in Vietnam. He returned highly decorated but disillusioned and testified powerfully before Congress as a young veteran opposed to the war. Kerry served as a prosecutor in Massachusetts, then as lieutenant governor, and was elected to the Senate in 1984. In 2004, he came within one state, Ohio, of winning the presidency. He returned to the Senate, chairing the important Foreign Relations Committee. As Secretary of State, he tried to find peace in the Middle East, dealt with the Syrian civil war while combatting ISIS, and negotiated the Iran nuclear deal and the Paris climate agreement. He provides a forceful testimony for the importance of diplomacy and American leadership in an increasingly uncertain world. He is currently a Distinguished Fellow for Global Affairs at Yale University, as well as the inaugural Visiting Statesman for the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
