Unmute Yourself: A Zoom Happy Hour with Alexandra Bell, Jennifer Blemur and Will Goodwin

Unmute Yourself: Your Security, Your Vote

A Zoom Happy Hour Series

Watch the full video of the second Unmute Yourself: Your Security, Your Vote virtual happy hour series, which took place on October 5, 2020. The event featured Alexandra Bell, Senior Policy Director at the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, Jennifer Blemur, Director of Women Legislators’ Lobby at Women’s Action for New Directions, and Will Goodwin, Director of Government Relations at Vote Vets.

For everyone—but especially Gens X and Z and Millennials—this was the most important election of our lifetimes.

What threats to our national security made this so? How do democratic processes impact foreign policy goals? As we face a global pandemic and recession, how do nuclear weapons impact budgetary priorities and define the key relationships around the world that are critical to our safety?

Last year, we hosted three happy hours leading up to the November 3 election during which we talked with policy experts and our mega-smart partners about the impact this election would have on the future of US foreign policy. 

The future of an American foreign policy grounded in our priorities and values still hangs in the balance.
