The United States Congress

November 19, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

A whirlwind, fact-packed explanation of how what many people think is a “broken” system works. Learn about membership, qualifications, committees, subcommittees, the Capitol Complex, how laws are made, Gerrymandering, lobbying and other things of note. The presenter does not pretend to have an in depth understanding of Congress, but will explain much of the workings that many of us may not know. This presentation will be apolitical and comments of a political nature will not be welcomed.
