Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and members, Springfield Public Forum brings authors, scientists, artists, educators and political figures to Springfield. These speakers share eye-opening insights and thought-provoking perspectives with Western Massachusetts audiences. The Forum hosts speakers like Justice Sonia Sotomayor and Senator Cory Booker at no charge to you. Free admission. No RSVP. All we ask is that you show up, sit back and stay inspired. We purposefully offer free access to our speakers. We believe change starts with ideas. As the late Robin Williams once said, “No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.” Let’s get started.
