Title: Defending Liberty in the Age of Donald Trump: A View from the Front

Description: Since Donald Trump’s election in 2016, the ACLU has been at the forefront of the battle to defend basic liberties and civil rights, from the Muslim ban to family separation.  What lessons can we draw from the first year and a half of the resistance? What challenges lay ahead for those who believe in civil liberties and civil rights, and how can we best meet them?
