Washington Week

« back to classes page
Ready or not, the 2024 election cycle is upon us. Will the primaries bring surprises? Will the prosecutions of the former president shake up the race? The chaos in Congress continues while critical issues are ignored. Will Congress pay attention to the wars in Ukraine and the Middle East? How will Congress address budgetary issues? Will abortion issues continue to motivate women of both parties? Will the Supreme Court continue to review rights and long standing precedents? 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 members. This is a fast-paced study group. Members 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.
