Panel:  How You Can Make a Difference in the 2018 Midterms

WHY:      The most positive thing Donald Trump has done for this country is to ignite a grassroots, progressive movement across the county. It started with the January, 2017 Women’s marches, magnified by the me,too movement, and continues today with the youth-led struggle for gun control. We’re on track to match 1960s activism for impact on national policy, and are laser-focused on the November midterms.
