The Iran Nuclear Deal or No Deal

March 31 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Grassroots organizations from across the country are joining together to present the most recent developments surrounding the JCPOA and what they may mean for the future of Iran and the rest of the Middle East. For those who care about preventing a future war as well as addressing the humanitarian role the U.S. has in Iran, Yemen, and elsewhere, this is the event to join. Please join us as we explore the goals and track record of the Iran nuclear deal, and explore signs of hope for regional peace and humanitarian stabilization.

Our expert panel includes Peter Beinart, Professor of Journalism and Political Science at the City University of New York; Kelsey Davenport, Director of Nonproliferation Policy at Arms Control Association; Trita Parsi, Executive Vice President of the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, and Barbara Slavin, Director of the Future of Iran Initiative and a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council; and will be moderated by Jamal Abdi, President of the National Iranian American Council. The event will be opened with special remarks from Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT).

Note: You are welcome to watch a recording of a previous event, which provides a great overview of the topic, but will not be necessary to get the full experience out of this larger event.
