Great Decisions: Middle East Realignment

May 8 @ 5:30 pm CDT

/ Free

This free event is being held in-person and is open to everyone. An optional dinner will start at 7:15 following the presentation. The dinner is $25 for Woman’s Club members and $30 for non-members (plus service fee and taxes).

The United States and the Middle East are at a crossroads. In spite of a reduced presence in the Middle East, the U.S. still has significant national interests in the region. Can the U.S. continue to defend its priorities in the Middle East and globally with a lower level of military and political involvement, or should it recommit to a leading role in the region?

This program is presented by the Woman’s Club of Minneapolis and is open to ALL.
