George W. Bush on painting a new vision of immigrants

In case you missed it over the weekend, watch President George W. Bush’s recent conversation with Norah O'Donnell about #OutOfManyOne, available today, April 20!

Global Health's Centrality to U.S. Foreign Policy: The Best Policy Tools

If we've learning anything in the last year, it's the great necessity of global health to U.S. foreign policy. This virtual panel, hosted by Friends of the Global Fight, Foreign Policy for America, and the George W. Bush Institute, will discuss what the most useful current and future policy assets are to apply and ask questions like:

• In responding to COVID-19, how should U.S. international leadership adapt and what shifts in U.S. policy or programming are needed?
• And how can the U.S. leverage mechanisms it has invested in - like PEPFAR and the Global Fund - to advance health security, women's opportunity, and development?

The event features opening remarks from Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA), Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) (taped remarks), FP4A Executive Director Andrew Albertson, and Bush Institute Executive Director Holly Kuzmich, followed by a moderated panel discussion and Q/A session. Panelists include:

• Joshua Blumenfeld, Managing Director of Global Policy and Advocacy and Chief Legal Officer, Malaria No More
• Joanne Carter, Executive Director, RESULTS
• Dr. Jendayi Frazer, Duignan Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution and Adjunct Senior Fellow for Africa Studies, Council on Foreign Relations
• Moderator: Shannon Kellman, Policy Director, Friends of the Global Fight

Inam is one of more than 3.6 million refugees who has resettled in Turkey since fleeing the 2011 war in Syria. With her four children in tow, Inam first fled to Egypt, then Dubai, before landing in Istanbul to figure out her new life as head of household and breadwinner for her family.

Like Inam, more than 90% of the refugees in Turkey don’t live in refugee camps and are instead working to integrate into their host cities’ vibrant societies. Inam is a talented cook with more than 30 years of at-home experience with Syrian cuisine, and she found instant success selling falafel at the local farmers market in her community.

President Bush and I are saddened and angered by the senseless violence and loss of life occurring to those peacefully protesting for freedom in Burma.

In recent years, democratic gains gave hope that Burmese leaders were building a free and open society. Instead, the Burmese military leadership prefers to return to the days of fear, poverty, and oppression. Hundreds of innocent people have been detained and jailed for exercising their rights to freedom of speech and peaceful assembly. Many have been brutally beaten or killed. The world is watching these shameful abuses of human rights, and we condemn them.

Through our work with the Bush Institute’s Liberty and Leadership Program, George and I have come to know many young Burmese leaders — including former political prisoners, members of parliament, and journalists — who believe that Burma should be a free and open democracy. They are deeply concerned for their country. And they worry about those who were already suffering before the coup — the Rohingya, and those affected by the challenges of the global pandemic.

The people of Burma want freedom. We see them fighting for it today. Free nations have a duty to stand with the Burmese people. It is our moral obligation to speak out against violations of human rights like the ones on the streets in Yangon and other cities. It is also in the United States’ interest to see Burma's freedom advocates succeed. George and I stand with them, and we support their brave efforts.
