What is the Foreign Policy for All?

Foreign Policy for All project overview

Feedback Form

Led by trained members of the Foreign Policy for All working group, the workshops will include a short slide presentation and ample time for discussion on:

– What’s wrong with U.S. foreign policy?

– What are the values that should guide our foreign policy?

– What are the key issues and priorites that should be addressed?

– Action steps: What it would take to get there from here? What are the obstacles? What actions are the people in the room prepared to take? To join us in our efforts?

Participants can read the Foreign Policy for All working paper or the shorter Foreign Policy for All At a Glance before or after the workshops.   Feedback collected will be used to improve the working paper.   The Foreign Policy for All, incorporating your ideas, will come before Massachusetts Peace Action’s annual meeting on February 7, 2015 for approval.
