Cultivate the Karass supports leaders as they seek to solve our country’s greatest challenges.

At Cultivate the Karass, we bring together leaders from different disciplines, with different political values, and provide them with tools and skills for engaging in civic discourse; collaborating with those they don’t agree with; and coming up with creative solutions to make our society stronger.
