As part of DL21C's effort to introduce New Yorkers to current voices shaping the Democratic Party, we welcome Congressman Seth Moulton next Wednesday.
Congressman Moulton has been an outspoken critic of the new Administration's Executive Order on refugees. He is an Iraq war veteran, won an upset primary race two years ago defeating one of his state's longest-serving incumbents, and is seen as one of the Party's national rising stars.  In Congress, he has focused his legislative work on issues ranging from jobs to tech innovation to immigration and is a member of the Congressional Future Caucus, representing a new generation of leadership in Washington.
Please join us on Wednesday, where Rep. Moulton will discuss his current work and vision for tomorrow's Democratic Party.
