While we have been hearing about the US presidential candidates for over a year, many are still not aware of the candidates views on key issues. This event offer an opportunity to hear presentations on the policies proposed by Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, as well as those of the Jill Stein (Greens) and Gary Johnson (Libetarian). This program is organized thanks to Sarajean Rossitto a Tokyo-based nonprofit NGO consultant. She has taught in the TUJ NGO management program since 2003.
There will be short presentations on specifics issues as determined by the moderator and organizer followed by more specific policy questions.
