3) Maintain a keen interest in foreign affairs / international relations.
The NYC Political Forum is a nonpartisan, all-inclusive discussion group that welcomes all New Yorkers to gather and exchange their passionate views on public policy matters, notwithstanding one's political ideologies.
Our regular monthly meetup usually include a discussion of the following:
• Local news in NYC and the greater metropolitan area.
• Domestic politics and public policies of national significance.
• International relations and foreign affairs.
For our side events, we conduct in-depth discussions of the following: political philosophies and theories; historical subject matters; geopolitical case studies; the Constitution and court decisions; and other public policy matters. We now also have "book club" discussions, based on the selected reading material from a book. To find out more about what we do, click here.
While we welcome dissent and although we don't shy away from controversial, hot-button issues, we always strive for a respectful, civil discourse — therefore, we have a zero-tolerance policy for personal, ad hominem attacks, or demagoguery.
If all of the above fits your interests, you've definitely come to the right place!
