Informal Forum (5/21/2010): America's Role in the World

The Russell Forum for Civic Life in Georgia (RFCLG) is hosting National Issues Forums on a monthly basis at the Russell Library. Our next informal forum will take place this Friday, May 21st from 3:00-4:30PM in the Russell Library auditorium.

This month's deliberative forum considers America's role in the world. What does “national security” mean in the 21st century? And how do we, as citizens of the United States, think our elected leaders should go about securing our nation? Does the answer lie in strengthening the military or balancing the budget? Or perhaps it’s a question of our active participation in a global society – working with other countries to find collaborative solutions to issues like overpopulation, nuclear proliferation, global warming, pandemics, and food shortages.

Using the National Issues Forums guide, America's Role in the World: What Does National Security Mean in the 21st Century?, the group will consider several approaches to tackling this complex issue. Trained neutral moderators will guide the discussion. The event is free and open to all. More information is available by contacting Jan Levinson at 706-542-5788.
