DISCOVER THE IMPACT OF AGORAS

An agora was a central meeting space in ancient Greece. For DEF, it is where members convene and collaborate. These local chapter gatherings create the opportunity to interact and connect with fellow national security disrupters to push ideas forward to advance national security.
