For years the image of who drives change in our democracy has reflected an old narrative of straight white men in smoky rooms. 

The Beat DC blows through that trope. 

We’re the only daily political news platform that highlights the people of color driving policy in the nation’s capital and beyond, and the policies that impact communities of color at large. 

Young People’s Caucus, Future Forum, Names Executive Director

Young People’s Caucus, Future Forum, Names Executive Director

Future Forum, an influential group of young Democrats in the House, led by Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), has named Dao Nguyen as its new Executive Director. Nguyen will help steer the generational Caucus’ work to engage young Americans and provide them with a voice in Congress. This year, the organization’s membership is set to double in size to approximately 50 members and will continue its focus on issues like gun violence prevention, college affordability, and equality of opportunity. The 29-year-old daughter of Vietnamese refugees is already a Capitol Hill vet. She has worked in Congress for seven years, most recently as Murphy’s Senior Policy Advisor. Before that, she served in the same role for Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA). The 2011 UC Berkeley graduate got her start in politics in 2011 as an intern in the office of now-Congressional Black Caucus Chair Congresswoman Karen Bass (D-CA). “Future Forum is lucky to have Dao as its new Executive Director,” said Murphy. “She brings to the role a dedicated career in public service and a deep understanding of how policy can directly affect young lives. I look forward to working together to provide a platform for young voices across the country and ensure Congress shares this new generation’s passion for building a better and brighter future.”
