Christmas Luncheon: Ed Geehr "Foreign Aid, Corruption and the Third World"

As we head into the Christmas season, our thoughts often turn towards charity and doing good for others.  Who is truly in need, and how can we feel certain our contributions are being spent effectively?

Haiti is the poorest nation in the western hemisphere.  The country’s tumultuous history includes native enslavement, violent revolution, natural disasters, infectious epidemics, gang warfare, sex trafficking, and unstable governments.  Haiti is a textbook example of the corrupting influence of foreign aid, the disastrous intrusion by the UN, and continuing exploitation by many charitable organizations. As a frequent visitor and medical aid worker in Haiti, Dr. Edward Geehr will share his on-the-ground perspective of Haiti’s current challenges and the best hope for its future.  

A graduate of Yale University and Duke University Medical School, Dr. Geehr completed a residency and research fellowship in Emergency Medicine at UCLA.  He was subsequently appointed associate clinical professor of medicine and surgery at the University of California, San Francisco and Chief of Emergency Services at San Francisco General Hospital.  Dr. Geehr is the author or editor of over 400 healthcare publications including scholarly articles, books, blogs and commentary.

NOV Luncheon feat. Jessica Anderson "The Case for Conservatism"

“The Case for Conservatism: Where We Go After the Midterms and How to Get there”

November 6 promises to be a significant election with far-reaching implications for local as well as state and national governments. Who better to give us a sense of direction after the midterms than a rising young star from the Heritage Foundation?

Fresh from serving in the Trump Administration, Jessica Anderson is now the Vice President of Heritage Action for America. In this role, she directs the strategic operation and day-to-day activities of the government relations, policy, digital marketing, and grassroots teams. Heritage Action is the wing of the Heritage Foundation that lobbies on behalf of the American people, holding lawmakers accountable for their promises. Their grassroots coordinators organize almost 20,000 Sentinel activists who are on the front lines of the conservative fight.

Prior to accepting her new role at Heritage, Jessica served in Trump’s Office of Management and Budget as Associate Director, Intergovernmental Affairs and Strategic Initiatives. Despite her youth, Jessica has nearly 10 years of political experience, which includes her first tour at Heritage Action as Grassroots Director. As Grassroots director, Jessica identified and trained young conservative activists. In 2017, she landed on the Forbes list of 30 Under 30 for Law and Policy, and is a recipient of other 30 Under 30 awards from Newsmax and Red Alert. Jessica graduated Cum Laude from the University of Florida and is a graduate of the Koch Associate Program. Please join us to hear from this clear-thinking millennial about strategies to secure our future.

October Luncheon: Meet Star Parker

636366670862970806-Star-Parker.jpg

“Breaking the Cycle of Poverty, GOP Style”

Star Parker is one of the names on the short list mentioned when anyone speaks of national black conservative leaders. She is the founder and president of Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), a public policy think tank that promotes market-based solutions to fight poverty. Her talk will stress the importance of policy that empowers Americans, not increases entitlement.

Before involvement in social activism, Star had seven years of firsthand experience in the grip of welfare dependency. After consulting on federal Welfare Reform in the mid-90s, she founded CURE to bring new ideas to policy discussions on how to transition America's poor from government dependency.

Star has a bachelor's degree in Marketing and International Business from Woodbury University and has received numerous awards and commendations for her work on public policy issues. She regularly consults with both federal and state legislators on market-based strategies to fight poverty. She has spoken on more than 190 colleges and universities about anti-poverty initiatives, has authored several books, is a nationally syndicated columnist with Creators Syndicate, and is frequently a guest commentator on TV news programs. Many of national acclaim would agree that Star Parker has established herself as a thoughtful and energetic leader in Washington, D.C.
