Please join us in welcoming Congressman John Sarbanes for an interactive discussion on Democracy reform.
Congressman Sarbanes is the architect of H.R. 1, the For the People Act bill that aims for clean and fair elections; ending the dominance of big money in our politics and ensuring that public officials work for the public interest.
Congressman Sarbanes has represented Maryland’s Third Congressional District in the U.S. Congress since 2007. He currently serves on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce, in addition to the House Subcommittee on Health, the House Subcommittee on Energy and the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. Congressman Sarbanes also serves on the House Oversight and Reform Committee and its Subcommittee on Government Operations. Since 2017, he has chaired the Democracy Reform Task Force, a bold effort in the House of Representatives to build a government that puts the public's interests ahead of special interests.
Born and raised in Baltimore, Congressman Sarbanes has experience working in the private, public and nonprofit sectors. He and his family live in Towson, giving him the opportunity to drive home every night and hear from people he serves in Congress. Listening to their concerns allows him to better represent Maryland and has shaped his work in the House of Representatives.
You will receive a link to register with Zoom when you RSVP. You will have the opportunity to ask questions at the conclusion of his talk.
