Policy on the Rocks

rock your own

Policy on the Rocks events grab hip venues, toss in crowds of young urbanites - conservatives, liberals and 'tweeners - add in experts and a splash of friendly policy talk - to party with a purpose.

Our NYC chapter is working on a couple of events for the fall. Check back here for details - or email us to get on the party list. (You can also get a flavor for what we've done in the past.)

If you're outside SF and NYC, but dig the idea of open dialogue mixed with a cool party, send us an email to talk about how you can take the lead in making Policy on the Rocks in your city.

Nuclear Fizz

A party and discussion about nuclear proliferation and Iran. It seems everyone wants to get into the nuclear club today - the question is if, and how, the US can keep the club elite. With Iran looking like it could be the newest nuclear regime, Nuclear Fizz takes a special look at our options in trying to keep Tehran nuke-free.

What's Your Poison?

A party and discussion asking the question "What role - if any - should the market play in solving our health care problems?" It was the perfect question for our left-leaning yet market-believing crowd in Manhattan - and a question we think that is at thecenter of the debate over health care reform.
