I've spent my life as a grassroots organizer, first as a consumer advocate and today by fighting for economic and social justice in Congress as the Representative of the 9th Congressional District of Illinois. The future of the Democratic Party is in how effectively we organize on the grassroots level, and that is why I'm so proud to endorse Yasmine Taeb for DNC Vice Chair of Civic Engagement and Voter Participation. Yasmine has demonstrated her prowess in her grassroots organizing work around refugees, immigrant rights, religious freedom and civil liberties. We need Yasmine's experience and passion to help make the Democratic Party stronger and more broad-based than ever before.
