Jamaal Bowman, the Democratic nominee and likely next Member of Congress for NY-16, will help kick off Netroots Nation’s 2020 conference by participating in tonight’s (Thursday, August 13, 2020) keynote.

Bowman will join fellow progressive congressional candidate Mondaire Jones (NY-17) and PA State Rep. Summer Lee in a panel moderated by Maurice Mitchell, the National Director of the Working Families Party.

Along with Bowman’s panel, the keynote session will include remarks from Rep. Joe Neguse (CO-2) and former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, of Fair Fight Action.

The keynote panelists will address the need for urgency in the progressive movement in this moment of reckoning with racial injustice, a global pandemic, and economic devastation.

The speakers will also address the coming election and what it will take for Democrats to mobilize voters and win up and down the ticket.

The keynote begins at 5:00 PM EDT; Jamaal’s panel begins at 5:15 PM.
