The Changing Landscape of Political Action

Phillip Massey, KUER
Constituents hold signs up at Rep. Chaffetz's town hall in Cottonwood Heights on Feb. 9, 2016.

BYU political scientist Jessica Preece says the rallies we’ve seen since President Donald Trump took office aren’t typical for Utah. There’s been the Women’s March, the March for Refugees, and Senator Jason Chaffetz’s town hall was filled to capacity with over 1000 turned away. Wednesday, we’re talking about political action in Utah and we hope to hear from you. Are you getting more involved? How are you making yourself heard? What type of political engagement do you think will make a difference?
