Dessert & Discussion with Ben Jealous

February 1, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Every second Monday evening, ORHoCo has an informal and friendly “Dessert & Discussion” Zoom event. We gather (virtually), exchange news and catch up on local and national activities.

Our February 1st, Dessert & Discussion will host our friend Ben Jealous, the president of People for the American Way, since June. He will drop in for a visit and talk about next steps for the progressive movement.

Ben has decades of experience as a leader, coalition builder, campaigner for social justice, and seasoned nonprofit executive. He served as the youngest-ever president and CEO of the NAACP from 2008 to 2013. Many of us got to know him better when he served as a surrogate for Bernie Sanders in his campaign for President in 2016. Ben was the 2018 Democratic candidate for the Maryland governorship.

We at ORHoCo have a special relationship with Ben, and we’re thrilled that he can come to visit us to share his insights for the future.
