We focus on international events and concerns, addressing United States issues only as they relate to the rest of the world. The first hour consists of a presentation by an invited speaker or by a member of the group. For the second hour all members are invited to scour various media sources for an item of global interest and bring a summary of it for discussion. In this way, we hope to increase our exposure to high-quality sources of news and information and to expand our appreciation of the importance of global affairs.
