Via Washington Examiner:

House Democrats and their staff are meeting tomorrow to discuss racial issues and fiscal policy with the founder of an organization that believes “right wing rhetoric” undermines racial justice.

Maya Wiley — a civil rights attorney who has “litigated, lobbied the U.S. Congress and developed programs to transform structural racism in the U.S. and in South Africa” — will address the Democrats.

Barbara Lee, D-Calif., told The Washington Examiner. Rep. Lee invited Wiley to speak to the caucus.
