A Hudson Valley Community Forum

The Gillespie Forum was founded in 1988. Its mission
is to inform and engage the community by presenting viewpoints, programs and speakers on significant issues. The Forum cooperates with local colleges to host events, lectures and film screenings on diverse topics ranging from the crisis in contemporary media to sustainability, from the Holocaust to Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt.
