Did the Trump administration drain the swamp, or is it still business as usual in Washington, D.C.? Has the president’s use of Twitter fundamentally changed the nature of media coverage in the U.S.? What’s in store for the 2018 midterm elections, and how are rallies and protests shaping our political and social landscape? You’ll explore a variety of current issues while gaining direct access to the perspectives of media experts, political players and national influencers. This program will focus on topics related to politics, media and advocacy. You’ll hear from a variety of speakers and visit organizations throughout Washington, D.C. that have connections to these fields.
