Pax Americana in Jeopardy. Hamilton College Professor of International Relations, Dr. Alan Cafruny, will speak about Pax Americana in Jeopardy. Following two World Wars, the United States created an international system of trade and security alliances whereby nations can forge a stable peace. NATO nations give mutual support, demonstrated by their solidarity with the U.S. following 9/11. Democracy, human rights, and the rule of law have flourished. In a world economy and environment, multinational alliances are essential, yet the U.S. is withdrawing from many. How shall we contribute to a more peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world? Join the conversation with Dr. Alan Cafruny. Sponsored by the Upper Mohawk Valley chapter, United Nations Association, http://www.umvuna.org.

VOTE SMART National Tour - Facts Matter When Voting. Richard Kimball, president of VOTE SMART, will be coming to MVCC to give a presentation that is co-hosted by the League of Women Voters Utica/Rome Metro Area.

The FACTS MATTER TOUR, is a 50 minute, four-part, multimedia presentation on Voter's Self-Defense:

1. The Founders' fear of ignorance should they cast power out to the people.

2. Entertaining but dangerous political commercials and how they manipulate people emotionally instead of informing them intellectually.

3. The people's acceptance of lies and their crumbling right to the facts.

4. Demonstrations on how to defend your right to the facts, the truth and the reality of our democracy is so dependent upon.

Vote Smart is a nonpartisan nonprofit that provides free access to info on over 40,000 candidates and elected officials. This information includes voting records, position statements, and interest group ratings, among other areas.
