As conflict escalates in the Middle East, all eyes are on the Gaza Strip. The current situation has its roots in years of conflict between many factions, all of whom have a stake in the many contentious issues of today. To gain perspective on the rapidly developing situation, we will be hosting a free Town Hall meeting at our SF Club Office. Join a panel of experts with a wide range of opinions as they address your questions, provide historical context, and examine the news of the day.
