Lt. General Clapper will appear remotely and will be available for live Q&A
Much has changed in the world, but threats to our national security remain. The potential causes are many and varied - cybersecurity, weapons proliferation, terrorism, climate change, and acts by other nations and non-state actors, to name a few. What does the intelligence community need to guard against these threats, and what is reasonable to expect? Join us to hear former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper share his thoughts on these topics.
Dr. Cornel West joins Dr. Christopher Hunt (CC), Rev. Dr. Stephany Rose Spaulding (UCCS), and Dr. Jeffrey Scholes (UCCS) in a virtual conversation to raise public awareness of the socio-political challenges facing the United States of America during the 2020 election year.
Dr. West will articulate what is at stake in this year’s election, while considering the systems that have brought us to the current historical moment, which is marked by a global pandemic, uprisings for racial justice, and a radically polarized U.S. American electorate. Of particular relevance to the Colorado Springs community will be an examination of the place of religion in the Trump era, highlighting the concurrent white evangelical and Black prophetic traditions.
Many events, ranging from the COVID-19 pandemic, elections, civic unrest, and economic woes, are gripping the world today. It is hardly the first time the world has been tested, and certainly not the last, but the path forward will require solutions that recognize the realities of these situations. With crisis comes opportunity. How will the world rebuild to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century?
Join us to hear Ambassador Kurt Volker discuss these challenges .
