School of Law & World Affairs Council Present Congressman John Garamendi

Wednesday, September 2, 2015 | 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM | King Hall Kalmanovitz Appellate Courtroom, Rm. 1001

How do U.S. foreign policies affect our daily lives? How our nation’s leaders deal with matters of climate change, trade, conflict, and human rights does make a difference in our jobs and food and gas prices. Our leadership also shapes how we are perceived in the world today.

Congressman John Garamendi will describe critical issues facing our policymakers, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the global agreement on climate change, and how they affect us in the Sacramento region. As a Member of the House Armed Services Committee, he will explain the global terror threats from ISIS and the complex relations with Iran. With the audience, he will have a conversation about what role America can play in eradicating hunger and disease and the desperation and hopelessness that are kindling the extremism and violence in the world today. Congressman Garamendi will share how his service as a Peace Corps Volunteer in rural Ethiopia in the 1960s shaped his worldview.

This event is presented by UC Davis School of Law, the Sacramento chapter of the World Affairs Council, the students of the King Hall International Law Association, and the California International law Center.
