Popular Great Decisions Program Returns to Columbine and Evergreen Libraries
(LAKEWOOD, Colo.—Jan. 14, 2014) Jefferson County Public Library announced today that it will once again offer the popular Great Decisions program at the Columbine and Evergreen Libraries
The Great Decisions program, developed by the Foreign Policy Association, is designed to serve as a catalyst for developing awareness, understanding, and informed opinion on U.S. foreign policy and global issues. The program provides background information and policy options for eight critical issues facing America each year and serves as the focal point for discussion groups across the country.
This year’s topics cover a broad range of policy issues, including:
• Russia and the Near Abroad
• Privacy in the Digital Age
• Sectarianism in the Middle East
• India Changes Course
• U.S. Policy towards Africa
• Syria’s Refugee Crisis
• Human Trafficking in the 21st Century
• Brazil’s Metamorphosis
Sessions at the Columbine Library begin with a planning meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 20; participants can pick up their workbooks at this meeting. The Columbine program will continue on select Tuesdays through May 19.
The Evergreen Library will begin its 11th year of hosting the Great Decisions program at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 21, and the program will continue through April 29.
