The Jewish Federation Connecting with Community presents Decade of Disorder: Madeleine Albright in Conversation with David Miliband at this thought provoking pre-recorded talk from the renowned 92nd Street Y in New York City.

Former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright joins David Miliband, the president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee, to explore what can be done to meet the needs of the unprecedented number of people uprooted by conflict, war and disorder.

They will address major global challenges today at the intersection of security and justice, including the refugee crisis in Europe, upheaval in Syria and other global hotspots that need humanitarian relief.

Prior to leading the IRC, David Miliband had a distinguished political career in the United Kingdom, serving as Foreign Secretary and Secretary of State for the Environment. Dr. Madeleine K. Albright is chair of the Albright Stonebridge Group, the premier global strategic advisory and commercial diplomacy firm. She was Secretary of State from 1997-2001.

This free program is part of the Federation’s Connecting With Community Series and will be followed by a kosher hot lunch. Lunch is a $2 suggested donation for adults over 60 years of age or $7 for all others. Advance reservations are required for lunch and can be made by calling (413) 442-2200 before 9 a.m. on the day of the program.
