The crisis begins in Europe and spreads to the United States, where Reps. Scott Rigell (R-Va.), Donna Edwards (D-Md.), reporter James Fallows, blogger Farai Chideya and Pam Iorio, a former Tampa mayor, will respond in real time. Frank Sesno, former Washington bureau chief for CNN, now of the School of Media & Public Affairs, hosts the event, which you can watch live above.
