Leslie K. Brown, @Edmunds_NAC

The Facts: Mr. Trump and The Russia Connection

Leslie K. Brown has been an activist her whole life, working with community advocacy programs which support women impacted by violence and sexual assault. She also has been working in international development since 2008 on humanitarian and children’s rights issues. She has recently become a community organizer with the Edmonds Neighborhood Action Coalition and the Outreach Team Leader for the Save The Children Action Coalition-Washington.

As an activist committed to fighting Trump’s agenda, Leslie is focused on the key issues confronting us today: the GOP’s failure to establish an independent commission to investigate Trump’s ties to Russia, the continuous violations of the Emoluments Clauses of the Constitution which prohibit Mr. Trump from receiving anything from a foreign power, and Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns.
