Advocacy Exchange - Executive Orders: What Recourse Do Low-Income Clients Have?


Shriver Center logoThe Clearinghouse Community, part of the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law, will be holding the February episode of the Advocacy Exchange webcast, entitled Executive Orders: What Recourse Do Low-Income Clients Have?, on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 from 1:00 pm to 1:30 pm Eastern. The Advocacy Exchange is a monthly conversation hosted by the Clearinghouse Community with advocates advancing change.

Frustrated by little action in Congress, President Trump issued more executive orders in his first year than did the past two presidents. When these executive directives harm our clients, do our clients have any legal recourse?

Join the March 2018 episode of the Advocacy Exchange to hear Abbi Coursolle, a senior attorney with the National Health Law Program, talk about the limits on a president’s power to issue executive directives.
