Panel Event: Living Under Collectivism

May 26, 2015 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Hudson Grille Midtown

942 Peachtree St Atlanta, Atlanta, GA 30309

It is oftentimes difficult for Americans to imagine what life was like under collectivist (and highly coercive) forms of government. Did the trains run on time, or were they constantly mismanaged? Did grocery stores ever have food on their shelves, or were they consistently empty due to shortages? What was life like under apartheid, and how did apartheid compare with other forms of collectivism?

Join us for a special event as we host a panel of speakers who will be sharing their experiences of what life was actually like under collectivism – and why they ultimately left it behind.

Our speakers:

Benita Dodd is a Vice President at the Georgia Public Policy Foundation and is a member of AFF Atlanta’s Advisory Board. She was born in South Africa and grew up during the height of apartheid.

Marina Davidovich is an Elite Rhythmic Gymnastics Coach, Level 10 Artistic Gymnastics Coach, and Brevet 4 International Judge for the International Gymnastics Federation. Marina was born in Ukraine during the height of communist rule.

As always, there is free valet parking and free drink tickets for current members!
