Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Jim Rubens will address up-and-coming African leaders at the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire on Monday.  The event which will be held at Southern NH University is titled, "Young African Leaders:  Democracy in Action, State and Local Government - A Regional Project".

As part of the U.S. Department of State's International Visitor Leadership Program, Rubens will address the group which is interested in talking about the campaign, voter outreach, and grassroots efforts.  "I am honored that the U.S. Department of State has again asked me to meet with political leaders of foreign nations, this time from Africa, to help them learn the ins-and-outs of issue-based campaigning," Rubens said.

On March 10th, Rubens met with Iraqi political leaders to discuss similar topics also hosted by the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire. 

Monday's event will be held on the campus of Southern NH University, 2500 North River Rd., Manchester at the Ford House (located next to Public Safety) from 2:30-3:30pm and is open to the media.  Interested media should check-in upon arrival with Tim Horgan of the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire for any possible restrictions on photography per U.S. State Department protocol.
