I have been trying to wrap my head around this as well. From a European
perspective I expect the US trade policy to drastically change, so that's
one thing. TTIP seems highly unlikely now.
Weren't the republicans somewhat moreopen to copyright changes in general?
Anyhow, I am in DC for OpenCon and would be greet to perhaps meet-up and
discuss. John & Julia from WMDE are also in town and I know other
Wikimedians will also be coming.

I'd like to start a discussion—what implications does Trump's election
combined with Republican dominance in Congress have for the movement's
public policy efforts?
It would seem that, at the very least, net neutrality, intermediary
safe-harbor, and perhaps the 2018 copyright expiration are at risk. I
figure a proactive approach would be best—we should move fast to reach out
to Congresspeople to make the effects of such legislation known to them
before it gets introduced.
At Wikimedia DC we've visited Congressional staff in the past, and we
could certainly do it again. What else can we do? What current WMF policy
activities or connections can we extend? What are EFF and the policy arms
of Google, Facebook, etc. thinking about right now?
