70 District Square SW Washington DC 20024
Thursday, September 27, 2018 – 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Edited by Raghavan, who served as President Obama’s liaison to the LGBT, Asian-American, and Pacific Islander communities from 2011 to 2014, this anthology is both a behind-the-scenes look at how the administration approached Obamacare, marriage equality, and the Charleston shooting, and an introduction to a diverse group of former staffers. Ranging from receptionists to security advisors, speechwriters to chefs, these dedicated individuals relate how they came to the White House and what the issues they worked on meant to them. Collectively, the compelling memoirs reveal the human faces of government and testify to the power of committed public servants to make a true and lasting difference. Raghavan will be joined by fellow contributors Heather Foster, former director of African American outreach and advisor in the White House Office of Public Engagement, and Brad Jenkins, advisor on youth media during Obama’s 2008 campaign and former White House liaison to the creative community. The panel will be moderated by Karine Jean-Pierre, former WH colleague and frequent MSNBC commentator.
This event is free to attend with no reservation required. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
