Key Discussion Points:
Just over a year ago, we interviewed the executive director of the Maine Women’s Lobby, Eliza Townsend, about why the federal courts matter and how they impact our daily lives. She highlighted the power a president holds in regards to their nominations and the impact of their appointments. A lot has changed since November 2016 and on this episode, we invited Eliza Townsend back to give us an update on “Why the Courts Matter.” To learn more you can visit:
