Brown Political Forum
The Brown Political Forum (BPF) is a student-run political discussion group that brings together students with a wide range of perspectives and experiences to talk about the important political issues of the day.
The BPF existis for two reasons. The first is that there are not enough opportunities for youth to discuss important issues without looking to current policymakers, professors, newsl outlets, and other older people. The BPF is a student-only operation to allow young people to develop their own voices, views, and solutions to problems independent of what older generations think is preferable or possible. The second is that there are not enough spaces for people with differing political views to engage with each other in a thoughtful manner. The BPF is dedicated to promoting mutual understanding through meaningful multipartisan dialogue.
