Panel Discussion:

A Progressive City in a New Political Era

The District of Columbia is one of the most progressive cities in the country.  The recent changes in the political climate put our progressive policies and programs at risk. Many of us are concerned about protecting DC laws, DC values, and DC residents.

Our panelists will discuss the potential impact on key issues including Education, Health Care and Immigration and how we can support our community.
