    The Washington D.C. summit will feature a panel of top experts on the situation with Iran, generating discussion among both these experts and laypeople to shed light on policy options that do not involve warfare. By the end of the conference, attendees will be equipped with the knowledge, support and structures to bring discussions and events to their home communities. Participants will be given training on “birddogging.” (Birddogging is when informed advocates attend political speeches and events to ask pointed questions on specific issues, forcing politicians to spell out their agendas.) Attendees will be asked to sign a “contract” in which they agree to organize a town hall and attend at least three political campaign events in exchange for the opportunity to attend the free leadership summit. ALL EXPENSES PAID, EXCEPT TRANSPORTATION TO THE WASHINGTON, DC SUMMIT.

    Goal: To educate young Americans on the pressing global issues currently facing the United States and Iran and provide the practical tools to influence US foreign policy on their campuses, in their communities, and with national policymakers.
