The 2020 presidential election will be decided in large part by the Midwest with key issues like trade wars and immigration driving the debates. Access to balanced views on the economic, political, and social factors that are influencing American foreign policy will be critically important. In lead up to the election, the Chicago Council on Global Affairs will bring candidates, policymakers, and thought leaders to Chicago for its America in 2020 event series. Join us to hear new ideas, meet the people affecting change, and have your voice heard on the issues that matter most to you.
