Event Type Panel Discussion
Organizer/AuthorTom Gallagher
In this forum, two leading experts on international relations will explore several questions that Bernie Sanders failed to address during his primary campaign: What would a progressive US foreign policy look like? How could it encourage other nations to pursue self-determination, stability, peace, justice, and environmental sustainability? What measures would be most likely to gain international support and friendship for the United States? And how can progressives incorporate these goals into our expanding movement for social and economic change? The speakers will address the failures of past and current US foreign policy and develop a contrasting vision of a future that we should be working to realize now.
