Please join us for brunch with Congressman Jamie Raskin, who represents Maryland’s 8th District. Though just a freshman, Congressman Raskin has already secured several leadership posts, including Vice-Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, Freshman Representative on the House Democratic Steering & Policy Committee, and Vice Chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
Also participating will be Congressman Dwight Evans (PA-2). He will introduce his colleague and moderate the Q&A session that will follow Congressman Raskin’s remarks.
His talk is titled “How to Take Back Congress in 2018: Mobilizing America’s Youth to Win Elections in Swing Districts in Pennsylvania and Beyond.” His interest in this topic stems from a new initiative he started recently, Democracy Summer Leadership PAC. This organization aims to win back Congress by training college and high school students and deploying them in crucial House campaigns in the Mid-Atlantic region, including PA and New Jersey. In 2017, the PAC trained and mobilized 52 students for the state legislative races in Virginia and the Special House Election in Georgia.
