     Afghanistan: A Road Map For Progress

                 Seeking Global Security

 

 

Washington, DC—Congressional Progressive Caucus Co-Chairs Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva and Rep. Lynn Woolsey have announced “Seeking Global Security”, an ongoing series of forums that will engage Members of Congress in discussions about foreign policy options that make sense in light of today’s global security challenges.  With Afghanistan emerging as the first major test in the Obama Administration’s efforts to secure global stability, the Congressional Progressive Caucus has chosen to open with the comprehensive, six-part series “Afghanistan: A Road Map For Progress”.  This series is non-partisan and features leading experts on the region who offer a diverse range of perspectives, both U.S. and international.

 

 

The third forum in the Afghanistan series, “What should be the role and goals of the military in Afghanistan (and NW border region); How is the President’s military strategy increasing or decreasing security locally and regionally?” will occur on Tuesday, April 21st, from 12:30pm-2:00pm in Room 2175 of the Rayburn House Office Building.
