January Monthly Meetup -- 2nd Ave Subway, "Fake News," South Korea, Mini-Debate

Happy New Year!

We'll resume our "regular" monthly meeting discussing the most compelling stories and events unfolding in our City, the Nation, and around the World.

PLUS, our monthly meetings will now feature a new segment -- "a Mini-Debate," where members can engage in a short, structured debate on a contentious issue.


• The City: the historic grand opening of the Second Avenue Subway

• The Nation: the emergence of the so-called "Fake News"

• The World: the impeachment of South Korea's President and the possible fallout

The Policy Forum: Immigration, Economic, and Foreign Policies of the 2016 Candidates

As we enter the final stages of the 2016 Presidential Election season, we'll conduct a three-part "Policy Forum" to examine each Candidate's proposed policies.

Our aim is to go beyond the mere campaign rhetoric, sloganeering, or platitudes to examine the substantive policy positions in-depth. We'll compare and contrast the policy positions of the four candidates nominated by the Democratic, Green, Libertarian, and Republican Parties.
