Join the Asia Society Northern California in partnership with the Commonwealth Club to hear from the top U.S. diplomat for East Asia and the Pacific, Assistant Secretary of State Danny Russel, who will discuss how building strong regional institutions contributes to long-term peace and prosperity, and why an immediate freeze on provocative actions is essential for stability.
