Dear Friends,

Do you have your team ready for WorldQuest? This IRC fan-favorite trivia night is going digital in 2020 for a night not to be missed! And this year, the first 25 IRC organizational members to register will receive a complimentary team of eight. You can find more information, register your team, or purchase your individual ticket on the IRC website. All proceeds go to support the IRC's educational programming, so please know how much your support means, especially right now.

The weeks ahead have a programming lineup that will take you around the world, and we hope you'll join us as you're able. Check out the full calendar below, including next week's conversation on Hong Kong and the future of promised autonomy.

We look forward to seeing you soon, on Zoom!

Kind regards,

Matthew Hughes, Executive Director
