Moderator: Tony Sakey. In these tumultuous times, there is nothing more important than being informed. The fact is we have a divided nation and a new president without Global Affairs experience. Those two simple facts are worrisome to the thinking citizen and attempting to understand the global repercussions of decisions made by our leaders is important to all of us.

The group will meet once a month over eight months.
