Washington Solicitor General Noah Purcell will be speaking about President Donald Trump’s travel ban on Feb. 8 from 4 to 5:45 p.m. at UW Bothell’s Activities and Recreation Center.

The speech is sponsored by the American Muslim Research Institute at UW Bothell. With state Attorney General Bob Ferguson, Purcell made Washington the first to challenge Trump’s original travel ban in January 2017.

The filing resulted in a federal judge halting the ban nationwide. Purcell will talk about his role and the legal, political and historic significance of the challenge.
