Whittier Trust presents Jerrold D. Green, President and CEO of the Pacific Council on International Policy, to speak to us about the geopolitics of the unfolding tragedy in Ukraine. As Russia continues its brutal attempt to subjugate a free and democratic Ukraine, the global community is both adjusting its view on the international system, heretofore focused largely on China, as well as on how best to support Ukrainian independence as a non-member of NATO. As the largest land war in Europe since World War II tragically unfolds, Russia is becoming increasingly isolated and Putin more menacing. These unprecedented geopolitical realities are evolving and changing in real-time, thus necessitating constant vigilance and reassessment.
The Pacific Council on International Policy promotes global engagement across Los Angeles and California, with the belief that everyone has a role to play in global affairs. The Pacific Council builds the capacity of local citizens to become global affairs champions, harnesses the collective power of individuals, businesses, and institutions, and exports LA’s talents and specialties to the rest of the world.
The Council is committed to representing and addressing California’s diverse perspectives and challenging all citizens to think critically about global issues. The Council is proud to have Whittier Trust as a corporate member and partner.
