A Fresh Take on the Legal Resistance to Trump
an AFJ Salon with Chris Geidner and Joshua Matz
Progressives count on the courts as a last line of defense against the abuses and overreaches of the Trump Administration. But what happens when those courts are packed with Trump-appointed judges? What new strategies are needed for the legal resistance to adapt and overcome, and what about the “I” word: impeachment? Join us from 6-8 pm on April 25 at our AFJ offices when attorney and author Joshua Matz talks about his work as a major player in the legal resistance with our host, Chris Geidner.
