We are delighted to host Secretary Jeh Johnson for our first speaker event this fall. Secretary Johnson will give a short informal talk, before answering your questions.
Secretary Johnson served as US Secretary of Homeland Security under President Barack Obama. He previously served as General Counsel of the Department of Defense, and is now a Partner at Paul Weiss.
This event is open to everyone, regardless of nationality, with an interest in US politics. There is a £2 fee for this event (to cover room costs), to be paid on the door. Please note that capacity is limited to 60, so the only way to guarantee your place is to RSVP on Eventbrite. **While non-US citizens are very welcome to attend, due to US campaign finance laws, we are only able to take money for the event from US citizens. However, US citizens are most welcome to pay for any non-American friends who would like to come along.
We are excited to announce that Jon Ossoff will join us for a meet and mingle event on November 6th. Ossoff was the Democratic candidate for the special election in Georgia's Sixth District on June 20th. Although he did not win the race in the end, Ossoff won unprecedented support in a deep-red congressional district.
The event will be informal and short, and Chatham House Rule will apply. Numbers will be limited, so make sure to RSVP on Eventbrite if you plan to attend. Please cancel your reservation if you are no longer able to attend, so that the space can be freed up for someone else.
