On behalf of the bipartisan Transatlantic Democracy Working Group (TDWG), I am pleased to invite you to a special public luncheon event on the NATO Alliance: Preserving Democracy and Security for the Next 70 Years.

This event is meant to put into action the promise of our public statement for NATO’s 70th anniversary:  “Now is no time for complacency. We must respond to the 21st century challenges facing NATO and reaffirm our commitment to defending and promoting democratic values as the essential foundation of our freedom and security.”
