Find out on August 23 - meet Rep. Khanna and hear how he got his political start as a UChicago undergrad, why Fortune magaine called him "a weird guy in a weird district on a weird mission", and whether he and Bernie Sanders ever get together for Harold's chicken.


Elected in 2016, Rep. Khanna is the only Democratic freshman this term to have a bill become law and is drafting an Internet Bill of Rights to protect consumer data privacy. He currently serves on the House Armed Services and Budget Committees.

One attendee will win an autographed copy of Rep. Khanna's 2012 book, Entrepreneurial Nation: Why Manufacturing is Still Key to America's Future.
