Great Decisions Begin With You

Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs.  Together, we read the Great Decisions Briefing Book, watch the video and discuss the most critical global issues facing America today.  Each year, eight topics are chosen by a panel of experts at the Foreign Policy Association.

In 2019, we will tackle critical issues from immigration to the State of the State Department.
