Church of Scientology Community News: United Nations Association to Host Ethnic Dinner and Discussion

The Nashville Church of Scientology supports the good works of others. Today’s highlight: the United Nations Association’s Ethnic Dinner and Discussion about the future of the euro.

The United Nations Association (UNA) Young Professionals Group is hosting an ethnic dinner and discussion on the “Future of the Euro.” The group feels this is a timely discussion as Croatia has just been admitted as the 28th member state of the European Union.

Senior Lecturer in Law and International Relations at Vanderbilt University, Klint Alexander, will facilitate the discussion at the event. Alexander is also President of the UNA Nashville Cordell-Hull Chapter.

The discussion will take its cues from the World Affairs Council's Great Decisions Program, which promotes citizen awareness and discussion about timely foreign policy issues. According to, it is the oldest and largest grassroots educational program on world affairs of its kind in the country, with about 350,000 participants.

Those attending the event are asked to read the “Great Decisions Briefing Books,” published by the Foreign Policy Association.  New participants are invited to join the program, even if they have not yet read the book.

The event and dinner are free, but the UNA is asking that people RSVP.  The event will be held on July 23 at 7pm at Cummins Station.

The Nashville Cordell Hull Chapter was established in 1945.  According to its website, it is part of a national nonprofit, bipartisan organization that supports the work of the United Nations and encourages active civic participation in the most important social and economic issues facing the world today.  The chapter is named after native Nashvillian, US Secretary of State, “Father of the United Nations” and Nobel Peace Laureate, Cordell Hull.
