Online Event: A New U.S. Policy Toward Africa: A Conversation with Chairman Gregory Meeks and African Activists
Please join the CSIS Africa Program for a unique event featuring Representative Gregory W. Meeks (D-NY).
Newly elected as Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and the first Black Member of Congress to serve as Chair of that committee, Representative Meeks will outline his vision for a reimagined approach to U.S.-Africa policy in a democratically controlled house and senate. Representative Meeks will also engage directly with Ugandan and Ethiopian activists working on the frontlines to advance democracy in their respective countries and in the region. In conversation with Rep. Meeks, panelists Rosebell Kagumire and Tsedale Lemma will discuss Uganda’s controversial elections, the conflict in Ethiopia’s Tigray region, and the impact of the Capitol attack on the U.S. government’s credibility. This dynamic conversation will conclude with key recommendations for the new Biden Administration.
This event is made possible through CSIS general support.
