TRIO and the Mid-Term Elections: What's at Stake
What do Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama have in common? They all lost their Senate and House majorities in their first midterm election. Meanwhile, President Trump lost the Senate majority in 2016 and the House majority in 2018. With many looming retirements and newly drawn districts resulting from the 2020 Census, there is a lot at stake in the 2022 mid-term elections for Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle - as well as TRIO programs, students, and professionals. This nonpartisan webinar will spotlight competitive House and Senate races, potential changes in TRIO-related congressional committees, and how the outcome of the midterm election will impact your programs. Learn practical steps about how to make the most of this election season and influence legislators to benefit your students and your programs in the years to come!
