220px-ro_khanna-_official_portrait-_115th_congressDATE CHANGE TO AUG 25- From Hyde Park to Silicon Holler: Conversation w/Congressman Ro Khanna, AB'98


Congressman Ro Khanna, AB'98, represents the 17th Congressional district, which encompasses much of Silicon Valley. So what's he doing in Silicon Holler, aka Paintersville, Kentucky, as well as Ohio and West Virginia?

Find out on August 25 - meet Rep. Khanna and hear how he got his political start as a UChicago undergrad, why Fortune magazine 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.

Hors d'oeuvres and drinks will be provided.
