Watch a video of US Sen. Jack Reed addressing high school students in the Rhode Island State House, where they were brought together by Brown's Choices Program to discuss global issues. The Providence Journal captured the event and interviewed children on their views.

Hundreds of high school students in Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Nebraska, and Rhode Island participated in the 12th annual Capitol Forum on America’s Future. As part of the Capitol Forum program, students study and discuss various positions on global issues even advocating positions that are opposed to their own to better understand options and their consequences.
