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. 

Carlos Curbelo to Help Advocate for Weed

Carlos Curbelo to Help Advocate for Weed

Former FL Republican Congressman Carlos Curbelo has joined the Executive Team of the Cannabis Trade Federation (CTF), a nonprofit for cannabis education and advocacy in public policy, where he will serve as a strategic advisor to the group. “During my time in Congress, I worked closely with the Cannabis Trade Federation ... In my home state of Florida, 71 percent voted in favor of legalizing medical cannabis, and voters in 33 states and D.C. have also decided to legalize cannabis in some capacity. This is a states’ rights issue,” Curbelo said. “I am joining CTF’s team because I know that they are the most effective cannabis industry lobby and that they have the resources, talent, and professional acumen needed to pass game-changing reform at the federal level." He has been busy post-Congress. Curbelo has joined the advisory board of the Millennial Action Project; the board of advisors for Alliance for Market Solutions; joined Telemundo and MSNBC as a Contributor; and was named a Spring 2019 Fellow at the Harvard Institute of Politics. More here.
