Session Type(s): Panel
In the wake of the Trump administration’s attacks on consumer, worker, health and environmental safeguards, it’s crucial that we revive our system of public protections. The next Democratic White House will face substantial political and procedural obstacles to legislation—from skittish red-state lawmakers to the filibuster. Executive orders, cabinet appointments, strong regulation and tough enforcement hold the key to implementing a new agenda. This panel will focus on how activists can push the next administration for bold, progressive reforms through agency actions—and take the fight directly to big corporations and big money interests.
