Rep. Raskin’s Democracy Summer to hold an event with prominent Black activists.
Democracy Summer PAC, founded by Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD), is holding a virtual event today (July 2) at 4 PM titled “The Politics of a New Reconstruction.” The left-leaning PAC will invite Reverend William J. Barber II and Bob Moses to speak.
Rev. Barber is an NCAAP board member and a liberal political activist. Moses was a leader in the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, an influential student-led civil rights organization in the 1960s.
In non-covid times, the Democracy Summer program teaches high schoolers about political organizing and travels to swing districts to volunteer for Democratic candidates.
