What's Next? A Conversation on Trump's Executive Orders and What We Can Do About It

In response to the current political climate and the new administration’s recent actions, our office is hosting a panel to discuss the legitimacy of recent executive orders and how our constituents can take action with local and national organizations. The panel will cover topics such as  civil rights, constitutional law, immigration, foreign/national policy, and more to help constituents get a better sense of the legality of the new administration's executive orders and what is within their rights. After the panel, we will breakout into groups lead by experts in an array of topics (environment, reproductive rights, healthcare, etc.) for Q & A  and to learn how to take action in their area of interest.
