The Malign Activities of China

Wednesday, June 23, 2021
2:00-4:00pm PT / 5:00-7:00pm ET

Join Strategic News Service, Washington Post columnist & author Josh Rogin, and Earth League International Co-Founder Andrea Crosta for a set of conversations on China’s strategic compromise of international governance systems, infiltration of foreign governments and regimes, and destruction of marine habitat and species.

It’s hard to replace in-person events, but we’re doing our best. Each of our FiReSide monthly virtual intelligence sessions features two centerpiece interviews focused around a central topic. In addition to Q&A sessions following each interview, you’ll have the chance to discuss further with speakers and fellow attendees in two rounds of small-group discussion. If you feel like lingering, you can stick around after the event is over for an optional full-group discussion.
