Cupcake, Chemicals, and a Culture of Alarmism
March 12 2014
America's Future Foundation - Chicago
Chemicals. GMO food. Fad diets. Anti-vaccine crusades. The obesity epidemic.
You've seen the headlines scream about them. We are bombarded with claims that the world is a dangerous place. This culture of alarmism is weaving its way into nearly every aspect of our daily lives, making people worry about common everyday products, food, and healthy activities.
Should we panic? Should we be this afraid of the world?
In her new book, "From Cupcakes to Chemicals," Julie Gunlock shows how the food nannies, environmentalists, public health officials, politicians, and government regulators benefit from keeping the American public scared.
Join America's Future Foundation Chicago as we host Julie Gunlock — Director of the Independent Women's Forum's Culture of Alarmism Project — for a special event on Wednesday, March 12th at 6pm at Sullivan's Steakhouse.
Everyone who attends will receive a complimentary copy of Julie's book. Complimentary hors d'oeuvres will be served.

AFF October Roundtable: Obamacare: To Delay, Defund, or Defy?

October Roundtable: Obamacare: To Delay, Defund, or Defy?
On October 1, health care exchanges across the country went live for the first time, giving many Americans their first taste of new laws regarding health care.
While the center right has been generally aligned on a goal of mitigating what they see as harmful impacts of increased federal involvement in health care, there has been less agreement on the best strategy to achieve this.
Some members of Congress support defunding certain programs as a means of hobbling implementation, while others see delay provisions as a better strategy. Meanwhile, in the states, think tanks and legislators are taking matters into their own hands and considering different policy approaches altogether, many with an eye towards limiting the role of the federal government.
What are the pros and cons of each of these strategies? Is this better resolved at the state or national level?
Join America’s Future Foundation for a lively discussion with our stellar line-up of panelists.

Genetically Modified Foods: Truth about Labeling
October 8 2013
There is significant misinformation and confusion about genetically modified foods (or GMOs), which now make up a major part of the American diet. Anti-GMO activists are seeking to combat GMOs by pushing for labeling mandates on the state and federal levels. These mandates are being promoted as pro-consumer but their effect will be the opposite by creating greater misinformation. Join us as we examine the history and science of GMOs, their current use and benefits, and why GMO labeling is not only unnecessary but would also do a disservice to consumers.
