December Civic Cocktail
President Barack Obama recently announced Executive Action on immigration reform. What does this mean to Washington state? Will this make our immigration system fairer? Join us December 3rd when Rich Stolz, OneAmerica's Executive Director, will address these questions and more with host Joni Balter. Stolz's experience inlcudes work at the Center for Community Change where he focused on the intersection of policy, politics and organizing across a broad spectrum of issues impacting low-income and minority communities, including immigration policy and environmental justice.
Then, take part in a discussion on technology and government with Kurt DelBene, former manager of HealthCare.gov and Michael Mattmiller, City of Seattle's new Chief Technology Officer. The expert panel will talk transparency and how to use technology to shape and improve government services. A panel of journalists will join the discussions including Crosscut's Berit Anderson.
Civic Cocktail - presented by Seattle Channel, Seattle CityClub and Crosscut - offers an evening of networking, civic conversation, Tom Douglas appetizers and a no-host bar.
