Monthly Foreign Policy Discussion Series Takes Place at LUMA
LUMA and Heartland International Partner to Give Chicagoans a Voice on International Issues

What:
The Loyola University Museum of Art (LUMA), in partnership with Heartland International, a Chicago-based, non-profit organization, is hosting a monthly discussion series. These events will give Chicagoans the opportunity to voice their opinion on important international issues in a public forum. The series kicked-off in January and will continue on the first Tuesday of each month moving forward, touching on a different area of U.S. foreign policy each time.

This month’s event features professor John Rogers, president of the Midwest U.S.-China Association, which is a coalition of 12 Midwestern states that seek to attract inbound Chinese investment to the region. Rogers will lead the discussion on U.S.-Chinese relations and will touch on his experiences as a founder of Transforming Asia-North America (TANA), an organization focused on assisting companies in cross-border mergers, acquisitions and strategic alliances.

When:
Tuesday, February 5, 2008
Noon – 1 p.m.
The series will continue on the first Tuesday of every month through October 7, 2008.

Where:
Loyola University Museum of Art
820 North Michigan Avenue
Chicago, IL 60611

Why:
The 1st Tuesday Discussion Series is a unique opportunity for area citizens to have their voice heard regarding foreign policy issues. Following each monthly meeting, Heartland International will summarize the discussion and send a briefing paper to the foreign policy advisors of each of the presidential candidates, as well as the Illinois Congressional delegation.
