It’s clear that the foreign policy conversation inside the Beltway is too narrow. No matter what the question is, the answer always seems to be that the United States needs to do more – even after two decades of war and overextension. What happened to an America that "goes not abroad in search of monsters to destroy?"
We at the John Quincy Adams Society need your support to help change the conversation. We're educating the next generation of leaders about alternative approaches to foreign policy – approaches that are more measured, more restrained, and more attuned to the lessons of history. We prepare them for careers that impact our approach to the world, whether in public service, academia, or the private sector. We've reached thousands of students on more than fifty campuses and have a growing professional network in Washington, D.C. We've sent top experts to offer viewpoints that challenge the broken consensus and point the way to wiser, less militaristic approaches. We've helped get fresh perspectives published. We've helped students land internships and young professionals land jobs. This is life-changing work.
It's hard for students to break into the foreign-policy space. We help guide them. It's hard to challenge the status quo. We help prepare them. I hope you'll join us on our mission.
