EVENT ADVISORY: The First 100 Days: Center for American Progress To Host Forward-Looking National Security Conference

Washington, D.C. — Ahead of the presidential election, the Center for American Progress will convene top foreign policy experts on January 14 to discuss plans for a progressive foreign policy agenda, with a focus on actions that could be taken in the first 100 days of a new administration.

Featuring Ambassador Samantha Power, Ambassador Susan Rice, Denis McDonough, Michèle Flournoy, Avril Haines, Kelly Magsamen, and Jake Sullivan, among others, CAP’s conference comes as tensions grow following the killing of Iran’s top general.

The conference will kick off CAP’s efforts to develop an actionable, off-the-shelf 100-day plan outlining the executive actions, diplomatic priorities, and policy implementation activities that will be critical to advancing a progressive national security and foreign policy agenda in 2021.

Press are invited to attend on-the-record panels, which will include comments on the current situation with Iran, and there will be opportunities to pull aside some speakers for additional interviews.

A continental breakfast and boxed lunch will be provided. If you have any dietary restrictions or require any ADA accommodations, please let us know as soon as possible so that we may make appropriate arrangements.
