At the outset of his term, President Trump signed a “Contract with the American Voter” outlining his 100 day plan to “Make America Great Again”. In an op-ed with the Washington Post, President Trump touted that in his first 100 days, “I kept my promise to Americans” and more, prompting WaPo to republish the op-ed with its own fact-checking annotations. Thus far, some have called the Trump presidency a resounding success, while others, including a writer for the New York Times, call this Administration’s first 100 days the “worst on record.”
APABA invites you to join us for an evening of dining and discussion to reflect on the Trump Administration’s first 100 days. How have the Trump Administration’s policies affected the APA community, and the communities at large? What lessons have we learned from the travel ban, and what are community advocates doing to fight it? How will President Trump’s plans for the Affordable Care Act change health care in America?
All this and more will be discussed at APABA’s annual Heritage Month panel. Joining us on our esteemed panel are:
- Laboni Hoq, Litigation Director of Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Los Angeles
- Gowri Ramachandran, Professor of Constitutional Law at Southwestern Law School
- Dr. Sue Kim, Professor at USC Keck School of Medicine
- Adrienna Wong, Staff Attorney at ACLU Foundation of Southern California
- Cori Racela, Senior Attorney at Western Center on Law & Poverty
