We debate global challenges and the US role in addressing them, and we take action around issues that concern our network.
This fall, our network is mobilizing around the 2012 elections. The elections offer a important opportunity to talk about the US role in the world. This is a moment to challenge not only our leaders but also ourselves to think about what kind of world we’re building.
Through our 2012: Challenge Accepted campaign, we’re monitoring the candidate positions on foreign policy, expressing our vision for what kind of world we should be building, and presenting our priorities to the next administration. This work is happening on our social media platforms and our blog, and through our journal.
