World Affairs Council of Sonoma County

Coming Soon…

October 21
What comes after Afghanistan? For answers, we’re privileged to have Keith McCormick return to WACSC. As a retired U.S. diplomat with broad experience overseas and in Washington, Keith is perfectly positioned to tackle one of our most challenging topics yet: What Biden Faces: The U.S. and the World After Afghanistan. It couldn’t be more timely. So mark the date for this high-impact Zoom presentation.
November 18
We will be screening a short film, “With Grace”, followed by a discussion with the filmmaker, Austin Meyer. This moving short film looks at the dangerous reality of childbirth in Zambia and other parts of the developing world. We will also discuss the situation in the United States. Did you know that the U.S. has now become one of the more dangerous places, in the developed world, to give birth? We may share more with Zambia than we know!
December 9
Anna Vassilieva, from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, will discuss Russia. Specifically, Anna will briefly update us on the current state of affairs in Russia and then address an important question: “Is a Constructive Agenda with Russia Possible? The Pros and Cons.” Sadly, in today’s media frenzy of fear and blame, a smart question like this one is seldom if ever asked. If you want a thoughtful update on where we are currently with Russia and where we might be going, this is a presentation you won’t want to miss!
