Unmute Yourself: A Zoom Happy Hour with Farshad Farahat, Stephen Miles, and Cassandra Varanka

Unmute Yourself: Your Security, Your Vote

A Zoom Happy Hour Series

Watch the full video of the third Unmute Yourself: Your Security, Your Vote virtual happy hour series, which took place on November 2, 2020. The event featured Farshad Farahat, Actor, Director, Journalist, and member of the Ploughshares Fund Board of Directors, Stephen Miles, Executive Director at Win Without War, and Cassandra Varanka, Advocacy Director at Foreign Policy for America. For everyone—but especially Gens X and Z and Millennials—this was the most important election of our lifetimes.

What threats to our national security made this so? How do democratic processes impact foreign policy goals? As we face a global pandemic and recession, how do nuclear weapons impact budgetary priorities and define the key relationships around the world that are critical to our safety?

Last year, we hosted three happy hours leading up to the November 3 election during which we talked with policy experts and our mega-smart partners about the impact this election would have on the future of US foreign policy. 

The future of an American foreign policy grounded in our priorities and values still hangs in the balance.
