Since last November’s election, many people have felt lost and overwhelmed by the political situation. There are so many different calls to action and ways to get involved, but not as much information about what it all means.

Michelle, a policy staffer in Congress, will give an overview of how our government is supposed to function. She will focus on checks and balances; separation of powers; and the different roles played by local, state, and federal governments. We’ll then discuss how to productively get involved to make a difference on the issues that are most important to you.

This class is presented in partnership with DC Public Library.
