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 second forum in the Afghanistan series, “Defining American Strategic Interests in Afghanistan and the Northwest Border Area of Pakistan” will occur in Room 345 of the Cannon House Office Building (Cannon Caucus Room) on Wednesday, April 1, 2009 at 2:30PM.
