We Take Your Shutdown Questions
January 17, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
What’s going to happen if the government shutdown continues? For starters, things are going to get a lot harder for the most vulnerable Americans: Over 3 million people who rely on housing vouchers could face eviction. Millions more who rely on nutrition assistance could go hungry.
Join us on Thursday, January 17 at 12:30 EST as our budget experts, Lindsay Koshgarian and Ashik Siddique, take your questions on the real crises posted by the government shutdown — as well as the fake “border crisis” behind it.
We’ll discuss the human impacts of the shutdown, identify better ways to spend $5 billion, and put the border situation in a broader context of U.S. foreign policy and climate change.
We’ll broadcast the talk live on the Institute for Policy Studies Facebook page from 12:30-1:30pm EST.
Send your questions to our Facebook Live post once the event starts, or tweet us at @IPS_DC with hashtag #RealCrisis.
Think you can make it? RSVP here for a chance to get your questions in first.
DC-area residents can join the event in person at the Institute for Policy Studies, in our Raskin Room.
