Preparing for National Security Consensus -- Phase II


The National Security Study Committee has really been inspired for the second phase of the National Security Consensus on the subject of U.S. Military Policy and Defense Spending. Not only have they designed a program which will include a videotape presentation which they prepared themselves to be followed by a general discussion session, they're, TAKING THE PROGRAM TO YOU.

Dottie Gullicksen, NSSC Chair announced:

"The Honolulu League members of the committee for a national security study have enjoyed going deeply into the issues -- but because the study is inspired by a three-phase national consensus for the League, our first commitment is to the general membership.

"For Phase one of the consensus we offered a panel of committee members and two en-lightened and comprehensive speakers responded to our invitation to speak on the subject of our consensus.

"For phase II (which is due at the end of Feb. 1984) we have hew plans for the general membership -- three intimate and relaxed sessions in homes of Honolulu League members, each co-hosted. The meetings will have different home settings, different time-frames and dates, all in the same week. The same program will happen at all three meetings followed by different group discussions.

"It presents a good opportunity to join in if you miss out the first time, or to bring a friend or pass the word, but most of all, to repeat and reinforce your information."

U.S. National Security: Facts and Assumptions

U.S. National Security is the report of the LWVEF's 1983 Conference on National Security that focuses on issues of U.S. foreign and military policy, defense spending, and arms control and provides a background for developing citizen education programs. It also discusses facts and assumptions a citizen must consider in evaluating U.S. military policy and defense spending in the 1980s and presents citizens' attitudes on U.S. role in the world.
