Great Decisions Meeting

The League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties Great Decisions group will meet weekly starting February 1 to begin this year's study course. This is the perfect time to get involved with Great Decisions.

Great Decisions is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Arapahoe and Douglas Counties. One does not have to be a member of League to attend the meetings. It is open to anyone who would like to discuss foreign policy in a nonpartisan environment.

The Foreign Policy Association publishes a book with eight topics and presents information in an objective, nonpartisan format. Discussion of each of these topics takes eight weeks. "FPA seeks to ventilate the issues and to contribute to a national conversation on U.S. Foreign Policy." In 2018, FPA will be celebrating 100 years.

Topics for 2019 are:
□ Refugees and Global Migration
□ The Middle East: Regional Disorder
□ Nuclear negotiations: Back to the Future?
□ The Rise of Populism in Europe
□ Decoding U.S.-China Trade
□ Cyber Conflicts and Geopolitics
□ The United States and Mexico: Partnership Tested
□ State of the State Department and Diplomacy
