A New Nuclear Arms Race?
Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Chicago IL
Chicago Council
In recent decades the United States has lead international efforts to halt the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. But many of President Trump’s statements on nuclear weapons suggest a coming shift in US policy.

YP Viewing of Great Expectations
Silk Road Rising Theater, Chicago IL
Chicago Council on Global Affairs
Join the Council’s Young Professionals Network for an evening performance of Great Expectations at Silk Road Rising Theater.
