At a time when our country faces tremendous challenges and opportunities both at home and especially abroad, the Franklin Center for Global Policy Exchange has served a critical role: enhancing global understanding of important international issues. I am proud to have been affiliated with this dynamic organization. It brings Members of Congress and their international parliamentary counterparts together in a non-partisan setting to discuss current global topics with Ambassadors and government officials, as well as experts from academia and the private sector.
