A Conversation With Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall

Discussing Air Force and Space Force personnel, the crisis in Ukraine, competition with China, human rights, and the role of the U.S. in the world

The U.S. Department of the Air Force continues to be essential to American efforts in the face of some of the world’s most profound challenges. Ranging from its heroic actions in Afghanistan, to its logistical support to the people of Ukraine and the allied response to Russia’s invasion, to grappling with the profound threat posed by climate change, the Air Force plays a critical role in responding to modern challenges.

Please join the Center for American Progress for a conversation between Secretary of the Air Force Frank Kendall and CAP’s Senior Vice President for National Security and International Policy Alan Yu on Air Force and Space Force personnel, the crisis in Ukraine, competing with China, the importance of defending human rights, and the United States’ role in the world.

We would love to hear your questions. Please submit any questions for our distinguished panel via email at CAPeventquestions@americanprogress.org or on Twitter using #CAPEvents. Live captioning will be available on Zoom and on the YouTube livestream.
