Insider’s View: The Trump Transition


On the eve of the 58th Presidential Inauguration, come hear from key influencers on the opportunities and challenges before the historic administration of President Donald J. Trump. FIU invites you to join us in an exclusive and timely dialogue led by our own alumna, Mercedes Schlapp ’94, which will include key presidential advisers and other thought leaders. And with Florida playing such a decisive role in the 2016 election, there will be no shortage of key leaders from the Sunshine State at this interactive event. 

Currently, the key themes to be addressed include challenges within the first month in office: 

White House Appointments / Immigration / Obamacare / Supreme Court Nominee / and considering the evening focus on the Latino community, outreach and priorities 

This program complements that evening’s Latino Coalition Inaugural celebration, and will also be attended by a good number of Floridians living in or visiting Washington this week.  

Darlyn de La Rosa, Green School Student and winner of the Inaugural Essay Contest, will also be in the dialogue that evening.

This event will be broadcast live at webcast.fiu.edu.

The Congressional Women’s Softball Game benefiting the Young Survival Coalition features female Members of Congress and women of the DC press corps (aka Bad News Babes) as they take to the softball diamond to ultimately battle breast cancer.  The mission of CWSG is to provide much needed resources aimed at assisting young women diagnosed with the disease and supports early cancer screening awareness programs for young adults.  Since 2009, CWSG has raised more than $500,000 for young women with breast cancer because… 

Young women  CAN  and  DO  get breast cancer.  In fact, one young woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 40 minutes.
