Daylin’s Resistance Forum

Sponsored by State Senator Daylin Leach, this is a non-partisan, issues-oriented event open to all members of the public. The forum will provide an opportunity for attendees to discuss the best ways to protect progressive policies and institutions. Participants will learn how to lobby elected officials and advocate for the policies they are passionate about. They will also have the chance to meet with experienced advocates from organizations that work on a variety of issues, including civil rights, women’s health and gun safety.

Leach explains his motivation for organizing this forum as follows:

The march of progress continues, but the election of Donald Trump has put all of it at risk. So many Americans who care about healthcare, fair wages, clean water, and civil rights are searching for the skills, strategy, and community needed to resist Trump’s coming attacks on progress. My forum will equip folks with those tools and help them get organized, energized, and united.
