ADVISORY: Mayors on the Front Line—Protecting Progressive Policy at the Local Level

Washington, D.C. — With the election of Donald Trump and a Republican-controlled Congress, U.S. mayors are emerging as front-line defenders of progressive policies. On Tuesday, January 17, the Center for American Progress Action Fund will host a conversation with four mayors on the role of the chief executives of our nation’s cities in this new political environment. Seattle Mayor Ed Murray (D); District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser (D); Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney (D); and Dayton, Ohio, Mayor Nan Whaley (D) will discuss the potential impacts of the new administration and Congress on cities, including how mayors plan to defend against regressive rollbacks in policy areas such as immigration, health care, climate, and civil rights, among others.
