Join Democratic U.S. Congressmember Yvette Clarke of District 9 for a community Town Hall on Donald Trump’s First 30 Days in office, with policy experts to discuss immigration, healthcare, and climate change.
Come with questions and opinions tonight, Wednesday, February 22 from 6:30pm to 9:30pm at Union Temple of Brooklyn, 17 Eastern Parkway. Be prepared for a packed house, as more than 400 people RSVPed on Facebook and seating is first-come-first-served.
Clarke, who represents the 9th Congressional district including parts of Flatbush, Midwood, Sheepshead Bay, and Park Slope, has been outspoken against the Trump agenda including a stated boycott of the Inauguration in January.
The goal of the event is to educate constituents and listen to their concerns, said the congresswoman, on everything from Trump’s immigration orders, the Affordable Care Act, and legislation passed in the House of Representatives. “There’s no way that I can embrace this administration,” said Clarke on the Brian Lehrer show yesterday.
Members of Indivisible 9th, a new civic group in Clarke’s district, will be there to ask the congresswoman about immigration rights and the Affordable Care Act in Brooklyn. “We commend Representative Clarke for her outspoken support on these issues but expect to hear specifics about what she is doing to protect her constituents,” said Indivisible member Melissa Gradel.
