Yasmine Taeb to Speak on Netroots Panel with Rep. Pocan and Rep. Schakowsky
Alongside Representatives Mark Pocan and Jan Schakowsky, FCNL Lobbyist for Human Rights and Civil Liberties Yasmine Taeb will discuss grassroots mobilization and movement-building around the Muslim ban on a panel at the Netroots Nation Convention in Atlanta, Georgia, on August 11th.
The panel, entitled "Making Congress Listen: How to Transform Trump Anger and Movement Energy into Victories on Capitol Hill," will address how organizers can channel outrage at discriminatory, inhumane policies into positive change. Speakers will outline methods for smart, strategic constituent lobbying and describe how this form of activism fits into a larger movement to move Congress in a more progressive direction.
The event will take place on Friday, August 11th at 9:00 am at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta.
Led by Mike Darner, Executive Director of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, the panel will also feature:
- Sarah Badawi, Progressive Change Campaign Committee
- Rep. Mark Pocan, U.S. House of Representatives
- Ezra Levin, Indivisible Project
- Rep. Jan Schakowsky, U.S. House of Representatives
