Democratic Strategist Donna Brazile

Mon, November 13, 2017 5:30 PM – 6:45 PM

Join the IOP for a talk with Donna Brazile, former Interim Chair of the DNC and veteran Democratic political strategist. Ms. Brazile was the first African American to direct a major presidential campaign, having served as the campaign manager for Al Gore in 2000, and she worked on every presidential campaign from 1976 to 2000.

In addition to her work for the Democratic party, Ms. Brazile has lectured at over 125 universities across the country on such topics as “Inspiring Civility in American Politics,” “Race Relations in the Age of Obama,” and “Women in American Politics: Are We There Yet.” She was named among the 100 Most Powerful Women by Washingtonian magazine, and she has received the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s highest award for political achievement.

We await the November release of her new book Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House.

Moderating the discussion will be Fred Hochberg, former Chairman & President, U.S. Export-Import Bank. Mr. Hochberg is a Resident Fellow at the IOP this quarter.
