Washington Week

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Washington, D.C. remains a battleground between political parties. The next presidential election is already a topic of hot debate. Will the 2024 nominees be a repeat of 2020? Might there be surprise candidates? There is concern about the economy, immigration, gun control, inflation, climate change, abortion, voting rights, the Supreme Court, the war in Ukraine, and more. We try to make sense of it all by providing a forum for discussion of news focusing on Washington and beyond, empowering OLLI members to understand different perspectives on the federal government and other areas of national concern. During each session we will focus on current news stories selected by the participants. This is a fast-paced study group. Participants are expected to be or become keen observers of national news through many different sources. Reading assignments and topics will be distributed in advance. All points of view are respectfully welcomed.
