Will COVID-19 Produce a Political Earthquake?

June 10, 2020
11:00 a.m. EDT

SpeakersArmstrong Robinson of AALU/GAMA, and Josh Holmes of Cavalry

The vast effects of COVID 19 are evident not only in our society, cultural norms, and health, but also our personal and community economics. However, these effects are not universally shared; quite to the contrary, the impact it is having on one’s family, job, and daily life is heavily dependent on geography, race, and economic standing. The popularized notion of living in a bubble of one’s own curated reality has calcified through the stay at home phase of COVID-19 response. 

How will it affect the election? How are the politics translating into our government now? Join Josh Holmes, President of Cavalry and former Chief of Staff to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and AALU/GAMA’s Armstrong Robinson, VP of Legislative Affairs, to find out what is coming next from D.C. and what the future holds for you and  your clients.
