American Growth and Global Leadership | A Conversation with General Wesley Clark
April 25, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pmFree
Join Grace Farms Foundation and New Canaan Library for an insightful conversation about global policy and America’s potential for growth and leadership with retired United States Army General Wesley Clark. In his remarkable 38 years of service in the US Army, General Clark rose to the rank of four-star general and NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander, Europe. Since retiring from the military in 2000, he has not missed a step while using his extraordinary talents as an investment banker, businessman, commentator, author, and teacher, not to mention answering the call to run as a Democratic candidate for President of the United States in the 2004 election.
Our conversation with General Clark will focus on the country’s most important assets: the planet and its people. The discussion will include his unique perspective concerning the crime of modern day slavery and its impact on our environment and the business community. Don’t miss this historic opportunity to hear from one of our nation’s true heroes.
