External Affairs Newsletter #4

Welcome back everyone to a new semester of GBC! We have a lot planned for you all and can’t wait to get started on our Spring programming. For those of you who are new members, this is our External Affairs Newsletter, where each month we let you know about exciting upcoming virtual events and interesting political resources from across the web. This month many of the most interesting political events happen to be hosted by Georgetown itself, but most newsletters include more non-GU events. If you have any suggestions, or would like to get involved in the newsletter’s production, please email GBC at bipartisancoalition@georgetown.edu or GBC Director of External Affairs Grace Eggleston at ge152@georgetown.edu. A special shout out to Jacqueline for helping to put this newsletter together!
