Ronald Reagan Foundation forms new nonpartisan center focused on civility in politics

IN THIS ARTICLE

Frederick J. Ryan, publisher of The Washington Post, is stepping down to lead the formation of a new center on civility in politics at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation in Simi Valley.

Ryan, who had led the Post for the past nine years, is a veteran publisher who was co-founder of Politico. He also was a former chief of staff in the Reagan White House. He managed a period of explosive growth at the Post, which has dramatically enhanced its digital offerings in recent years.

In a release, the Reagan Institute said that the new center will “promote constructive solutions to address the deep divisions and discord in America.” 

“Americans of all political persuasions are calling for a return to a culture of civility and respect in our political processes, social media platforms, schools and communities,” Ryan said in a statement.

Ryan is currently the board chair for the Presidential Foundation and Institute.
