As conflict escalates in the Middle East, all eyes are on the Gaza Strip.

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.
