Lectures and Talks

Heather Gerken '91

Wednesday, May 2, 2018 - 4:30pm Location: Arthur Lewis Auditorium, 100 Robertson Hall

Sanctuary cities. Marijuana legalization. Environmental reform. Federalism has long been the darling of conservatives, but progressives are increasingly turning to state and local power in the age of Trump. Dean Gerken will explain why state and local policy can serve as a tool of resistance and an incentive for compromise. In doing so, she will urge progressives and conservatives alike to move beyond outdated notions of state power and embrace a federalism suited for the 21st century.
