Roosevelt Fireside Chat Policy Discussion Tuesdays

Joel Hochman ’13 writes in to holla:

The Roosevelt Institute welcomes the Wesleyan community to its weekly fireside chat! Come and discuss the week’s hottest issues.

This week: The Tea Party movement. How does its newfound success change the political landscape? What does its influence mean for Democrats? for Republicans? Is the movement even sustainable in the long term?

Also on the agenda: a continuation of last week’s discussion about the unrest in Egypt.

Date:   Feb. 8
Time:   8:30 PM – 9:30 PM

This week:
Protests in Egypt
What does this mean for the country?  The region?  How is religion playing a role?  And the media?  What about the Government’s response?
Domestic politics
Republican congressmen goal to curb abortions in many states
Church v. state?  Substance of arguments?  What next?
Come and discuss these current issues with us.
