Next Thursday @ 12:15pm, Watch or Attend Simon's "Dawn of a New Politics"

We hope you will join us next Thursday, January 14th at 12:15 pm for Simon's presentation of "The Dawn of a New Politics." We will serve lunch at noon and go live with the presentation in person and on the web at 12:15 pm.

2009 was a big year for our country and our world: we witnessed the first year of an historic presidency, made unprecedented progress on legislation to reform a broken health care system, experienced social media and new technologies that enabled us to communicate and share information with speed and efficiency never before possible, and saw political change around the world--from a growing role for emerging economic powers to cries for freedom and justice from newly empowered people in Iran--that allowed us to envision the potential of the interconnected 21st century.

In the midst of these achievements, 2009 also brought its share of challenges: the struggle of everyday people to get ahead in this age of globalization continued; the diversity of generations and races, each with an equal voice in the conversation about who we are and what we are becoming as a nation, caused tensions to surface within our communities, government, and even political parties; and, as we were reminded on Christmas Day, terrorism and unconventional warfare remain a very real threat.

If the first few days of 2010 are any indication of what lies ahead, this year will be filled with just as many challenges and surprises as the last. Come hear Simon's take on where we've been and where we're going as this new age of Obama continues to unfold.
