Add to My Calendar Saturday, August 4, 2018 3:30pm to 4:45pm

Join CCR's Executive Director, Vince Warren, at Netroots Nation 2018 as he discusses the importance of policy and ligtigation in our current political landscpae. The discussion will take place in Room 220/221.

The past 18 months have been a whirlwind for public interest litigation, starting with the Trump travel ban, and ending … never. And one of the things we have learned—just as Republicans did in the Obama years—is that courts matter, and that even without political power, policy can still be impacted through litigation. The panelists are on the legal front lines, fighting in the courts to protect basic civil and economic rights on every issue from public access to Twitter accounts, to Department of Education loan forgiveness, to keeping refugee families together, to combating a resurgent white supremacist movement.
