The 2024 Building Opportunity speaker is renowned sociologist and author Eric Klinenberg! On Oct. 24, Klinenberg will speak at the 2024 Building Opportunity Keynote Presentation at Clayton Hall at 6:30 p.m. In his latest book, “2020: One City, Seven People, and the Year Everything Changed,” Klinenberg examines the individual stories of seven New Yorkers weathering 2020’s challenges and the varied human responses to the crises.  Through Klinenberg’s brilliant study, the DCF invites you to join us as we explore, analyze, and learn from “2020” to create a more resilient and equitable Delaware, no matter what future challenges we face.
