  • Melvin Goodman, a senior fellow at the Center for International Policy, and an adjunct professor of international relations at Johns Hopkins University, worked for 42-years in government service with tours at the CIA, the State Dept., and the Dept. of Defense’s National War College. Mel, author of five books, his latest titled, “American Carnage: The Wars of Donald Trump,” will discuss negotiations now underway between the Trump administration and Taliban to reach a peace agreement that would lay the groundwork for the eventual withdrawal of U.S. troops. He’ll assess the cost of this decades-long war on the Afghan people, and what the future may hold for the war-torn nation.
  • Victor Pickard, Associate Professor at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania, co-directs the Media, Inequality & Change Center. The author of, “America’s Battle for Media Democracy” and co-author of “After Net Neutrality: A New Deal for the Digital Age,” Pickard will talk about his new book, “Demcoracy Without Journalism? Confronting the Misinformation Society.”
  • Dan Knudsen and Michael Uhl, members of People’s Action for Clean Energy, talk about Community Choice Aggregation (CCA), a tool cities and towns can use to direct their energy purchases toward renewable sources – while saving money at the same time. Other states such as Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, New York, California and four others have implemented CCA, and there’s a push to have Connecticut adopt it as well.
