World Affairs Council of Greater Hampton Roads

253 members | Virginia, Virginia

Founded in 1969, the World Affairs Council of Greater Hampton Roads (WACGHR) is nearly one of nearly 100 chapters of the World Affairs Councils of America (WACA).  A 501C(3) non-profit, non-partisan, educational organization, the Council is dedicated to promoting an understanding of global issues through education and public discussion, believing that a well-informed public is essential for the conduct of foreign policy to a democracy.  Based on this belief and thanks to our members and sponsors, the attendance of high school and full-time college students is subsidized at the majority of our Council programs.  

Our mission is to educate our community to become well-informed and engaged citizens about critical international issues as they affect the world, nation, and the local region and thus prepare Hampton Roads citizens to thrive in an increasingly complex and challenging world.
