Exploring the Political Challenges and Opportunities in the Trump Era

The purpose of this webinar was to help provide a landscape analysis of domestic policy changes and the impact on vulnerable and targeted communities in the Trump era.  While the policy agenda is becoming clearer, there is still a lot of anxiety and uncertainty and it is our hope that this session will try to provide some insights into some of the major policy changes on the horizon, the current and potential impact the Trump era is having in communities, where are prospects for folks fighting back effectively and building power, and what are the most necessary things to do in this environment.
