“The Trump administration’s policies have signaled an attack on human rights and civil liberties,” said West Hollywood Mayor John J. Duran. “Many people have observed that the administration’s rhetoric is deteriorating our nation’s policy discourse and democratic institutions. In light of these challenges, it is more important than ever to stay informed about what is currently happening in Washington D.C. and examine what we can expect in the coming weeks and months.”

Topics of the panel discussion will include the Mueller investigation, the status of lawsuits currently pending against President Trump, the administration’s immigration policies and related human rights concerns, and the outlook for resistance as we look into the future.

On-site parking is extremely limited. Attendees are encouraged to take alternate modes of transportation, such as public transit or ride share services. The Center for Early Education is located at 563 N. Alfred Street in West Hollywood. Due to construction on campus, the interim main entrance to the school is located off of Alfred Street.
