Teaming up to Host 2018 Great Decisions 

The JCC in Sherman and The Sherman Library are teaming up for the 2018 Great Decisions program. Foreign Policy Association (FPA) sponsors the Great Decisions program.  The mission of the FPA is to foster an awareness of US foreign policy and global issues. Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion group on global affairs. Each month attendees will meet and review issues surrounding a specific topic picked by a panel of experts and discuss the most critical world issues that America is facing today.


At each session participants will watch a short film pertaining to that month’s topic. Following the film the group will discuss the related issues.  The topics for 2018 are:  The Waning of Pax Americana, Russia’s Foreign Policy, China and America: the New Geopolitical Equation, Media and Foreign Policy, Turkey: A Partner in Crisis, US Global Engagement and the Military, South Africa’s Fragile Democracy, and Global Health: Progress and Challenges.


This program will be held on the first Friday of the month starting in April and running through November. Sessions run from 7PM- 9PM and will alternate locations, starting at the JCC in Sherman on Friday, April 6th.  This event is free and open to everyone in the community.
