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. 

DCCC Chief of Staff Resigns

DCCC Chief of Staff Resigns

Jalisa Washington-Price has stepped down from her position as DCCC Chief of Staff -- a position she held for about two months. In a statement to Politico, Washington-Price stated that she was leaving the DCCC because other opportunities had presented themselves and that she was “looking forward to continuing to elect Democrats this cycle." She had also served as the Director of the DCCC’s diversity office, where she was in charge of efforts to recruit minority staffers. She also helped run the DCCC's minority voter engagement program. Before the DCCC, Washington-Price worked on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign in South Carolina and Ohio. "My time at the DCCC working to win back the House, while advancing the core values of our party — inclusion, opportunity, and progress — has been an incredible journey," Washington-Price wrote. "They have a solid team for the 2020 cycle.” We’ll keep you posted on her next move. More here.
